Unless you live under a rock, you know that Whitney Houston died earlier this week, no doubt from something drug and alcohol related. She was only 48. I'm not a huge pop fan, but like Michael Jackson, she was a hugely influential American musical artist and entertainer who self-destructed. At the top of her game in the early 90's, she was the best.
If you wonder the toll drug addiction takes, watch these two videos of the same song. The first was in 1994 with Whitney at her prime. The second is from a year ago.
