Whitney was so full of life. She was so looking forward to tonight even though she wasn't scheduled to perform. Whitney was a beautiful person and a talent beyond compare.

No other female pop star — not Mariah Careynot Celine Dionnot Barbra Streisand — quite rivals Houston in her exquisite vocal fluidity and purity of tone, and her ability to infuse a lyric with mesmerizing melodrama. She was a true musician. Her voice was an instrument and she knew how to use it.
With the same complexity as someone who has mastered the violin or the piano, Whitney mastered the use of her voice. Whitney is 'The Voice' because she worked for it.

Houston's vocal stylings have had a significant impact on the music industry. While almost every performer whose albums sell in the millions calls upon an entertainer's bag of tricks, from telling jokes to dancing to circus pyrotechnics, Ms. Houston would rather just stand there and sing.
