Long before there was a TV singing competition called “The Voice,” there was Whitney Houston — aka “The Voice.” But there really was no competition. Houston’s power and range was second to no one else of her generation. In fact, the term of “The Voice” was something of an insult; it suggested that she was given a gift of singing from above, that it had little to do with talent. But to those who heard “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” or “Greatest Love of All” Or “I Will Always Love You” or any of the other chart-topping hits, it didn’t matter where the voice came from. It was magical. Houston sadly died in 2012, but not before gifting us all with a gorgeous legacy.
You can listen to Whitney Houston on iTunes, Spotify, Tidal, YouTube, and Amazon, but the important thing is that you listen!
