I’m sick of losing icons to drugs. Today, Whitney Houston died at the age of 48 and though the cause of death has yet to be released, it is assumed it was drug related. Michael, Heath, Amy and now Whitney plus the list goes on and on. It’s too sad to take. When “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” came out in 1987, I was only 9 years old and I remember thinking how beautiful Whitney was and what an amazing voice she had. I wanted to be her. I can’t sing to save my life but at age 9, I didn’t care. I don’t have to go on and on about what a talent she was…we all know that already.  Just wanted to share my first memory of her. Thank you Whitney.
