Whitney Houston, who reigned as pop music's queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown, has died. She was 48. Publicist Kristen Foster said Saturday that the singer had died, but the cause and the location of her death were unknown
Most of her hits were from the late 80s/early 90s, so if you don't listen to pop music or are under the age of 25 you might not know who she is.
Whitney Who-ston?She had one of the greatest voices in history, but she got into drugs in the mid-90s, along with smoking, and completely ruined said voice. :< It's such a shame, she could've kept a strong career right up to now if she's wanted to; most of the current pop types in the last 15 years based their style on hers, but she outsang them all, until she destroyed her voice.
Folks over 25 won't really care, but she was insanely popular when I was a teen and is one of the bestselling female singers ever. So it's always strange to be in a world where someone like her is gone, even if she didn't do much in the last decade.
Anyway, she sang before autotune was mainstream, and still outsang most of the better singers (not just pop) of today.
