Legendary pop singer Whitney Houston has died at age 48, representative Kristen Foster said Saturday night.

The cause and location of her death was not immediately known.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and those who knew her well. Memory eternal!!!

"Lord have mercy."  What a shame, she was so gorgeous when she was in the  prime of her career, and such a wonderful singing talent.  Another example of what illicit drugs do to good people.  She tried very hard to kick her most unfortunate habits, from what I could gather; what a terrible shame.

Very sad news about Whitney Houston. Lifting up prayers for her, and all of her family and friends.

What is fame without faith, or fortune without virtue?

"What does it profit to gain the world and lose your soul?" [St. Matthew 16:26]
 
Fame is a flame that burns fast and bright
 Like shooting stars dying in the night

"Lord have mercy."

Jesus Loves Me (Brazil, 1994). The last recording of her singing, recorded her briefly singing this song (9 February, 2012, I believe).

Funeral's over. It was well conducted overall. It was quite sad hearing "I'll always love you" when her body  was being taken out of the church. May God rest her soul and give comfort to her family.

Lord have mercy,

Very sad news indeed. That woman had one of the most amazing voices ever, imagine having her sing for Liturgy, that would be very interesting. Anyway, Lord have Mercy!
