A voice that could never be immitated and music that will live on forever, Whitney Houston is a legend! Affectionately called “Nippy”, Whitney was like no other! Because her birthday was just a couple of days ago (August 9th), let’s travel down memory lane with some of her classics that are my faves!
Who doesn’t love timeless music? When you think of timeless hits, you cannot help but to think of Whitney Houston.
“I Wanna Dance With Somebody” makes me want to do just that, dance! How about you?
It is almost as if Nippy had a song for every mood and/or emotion you may be experiencing. How about “How Will I Know?” It wasn’t just her voice that was amazing, but also the lyrics and meanings behind such hits!
Now call me old school, but one of my favorite songs by Whitney was “You Give Good Love!” Yes, I am a sucker for the mushy stuff, but hey, it’s great music!
Of course we cannot forget “The Voice” being a voice for every woman! “I’m Every Woman”…
Whitney was versatile! She even stepped into her acting side and of course, had hits from the soundtracks of The Bodyguard, The Preacher’s Wife (best-selling Gospel album of all time) and Waiting to Exhale, just to name a few. Sometimes we all need to just exhale!
Amazingly enough, Whitney managed to show her more hip side as well! Many collaborations were under her belt, yes, but she went a different direction stepping out of the box with “Heartbreak Hotel” featuring Kelly Price and Faith Evans!
I would be remiss not to take us back to Nippy’s DYNAMIC performance of the national anthem in 1991 at the Super Bowl! Definitely a performance that cannot be touched till this day, not even by some of the most successful/talented artists/vocalists today!
There are so many hits by Whitney that I cannot even binge-post them all and I have to admit that her passing did sting a bit and still does. One song that I keep going back to is “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength”, a song Whitney performed taking us along her journey. Whitney explained her struggles and how she didn’t know her own strength of overcoming such. Although, she lost her battle, she will never be forgotten.
Her timeless hits and legacy will forever live on and that, is the “Greatest Love of All!”
Happy Birthday, Nippy! We’ll always love you!
