    I hope she's remembered for her voice and talent not her drug abuse. R.I.P
    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.

    I'll never forget her singing the National Anthem at Super Bowl 25. Best rendition EVER. I still get chills anytime I hear it. RIP.

    RIP

    She had one of the greatest voices ever, and her rendition of the National Anthem was the best I've ever heard.

    I wish she made better choices in her life. 48 is too young.

    Am I remembering incorrectly, or did it come out later that she lip-synched that performance?

    How sad yet not surprising, so young and such amazing talent. Yet another tragic tale of how drugs destroy lives. This makes me very sad.

    RIP, Whitney. One of the greatest voices ever.

    Yes she did.

    The pop star had recorded the vocal weeks before in a Los Angeles studio and lip-synched the song at the Super Bowl, but few in the crowd of 73,000 or the 110 million watching at home seemed to notice.
    Extremely sad news. One of my nieces is torn up, since Whitney is her girl. I replied to her that Whitney was everyone's girl back in the days.

    I haven't even gotten over Don Cornelius' death, and now this. What a voice she had.

    Re: Whitney Houston is dead

    How ironic that her passing comes on the night before the Grammy awards. I remember she opened the Grammy telecast many years ago when she was young and stunning, with that incredible voice and gave an amazing performance of "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" that just blew everyone away. What a talent she was!

    So sad. I hope she has found peace.

    There is a Grammy party going on at the hotel, hosted by Clive Davis, I think she was supposed to perform. Her body is still there, i heard that the party is causing delays on getting her out of there. Very morbid.

    That makes things even worse. I hate people passing on during something chaotic.

    Garth Brooks is the reason for that. The network wasn't gonna run his new video so he wasn't gonna do it. They wanted to get Jon Bon Jovi to pinch hit (he was in attendance) but Garth ended up giving in.

    They pre-recorded Whitney's because the Gulf war had just begun and she/everybody wanted it to be "perfect".
    He'll never get another milestone like that one. So what? His whole career is a milestone. - JL25and3
