This past Saturday many of you were shocked (as I was) when news of Whitney Houston’s death surfaced. In fact, many of us are still hoping that someone will come out and say it is a big hoax, but unfortunately we have to deal with the sad reality. Instead of going on and on, I am personally thankful for Whitney’s music which spans generations and which has comforted me and many others when dealing in particular with issues of LOVE and the heart. May her soul rest in peace and may we dwell more on her special gift of that incredible voice, and not so much on the personal struggles she had over the years (we all struggle). Here is one of MY all-time favorite songs and LIVE performances from Whitney. SUCH a gifted lady…brings tears to my eyes. Let’s just hope she is free now.
Also on this past Saturday, I braved the weather and fought a bug I was catching to go and see Romain Virgo perform LIVE at the Crossroads Club. This young man has been very special to me since he won the Digicel Rising Star competition back in 2007 when he was 17, so I felt like it was my civic duty to go and check him out. I was not disappointed (well, I was by the handfuls of people who attended) and I just felt very happy to see such a young man (22) perform songs which are so lyrically rich with such passion and gratitude. It was a beautiful experience for me and I just HAD to share that. Please research him and check out some of his songs. He is a great singer and performer and such a nice young gentleman off stage too. Please stay tuned for my interview with him on next Thursday, February 23.
