I was very sad to see this when I checked the news today. It's just very unfortunate how someone can be so talented, yet addiction and bad choices can end your life. Whitney Houston was probably one of the most talented vocalists of our lifetime, and now she leaves a daughter to pick up the pieces.
I saw this again and is one my favorite renditions of the National Anthem I've ever heard. People try so hard, put extra notes and struggle to sing this song, even talented vocalists. Yet when she sings it, it's beautiful completely on its own. She makes singing it look and sound so completely effortless. Amazing.
