Whitney Houston (1963-2012)

Sad.

Although she was never one of my favourite vocalists, it can hardly be denied that Whitney Houston had one of the most powerful and gorgeous voices in pop music in the 1980s. But she allowed her drug habits to destroy her voice and derail the potential of a legendary musical career.

Cause of death is not currently known (or at least not yet public), but it won't surprise me if we soon find out that Houston is yet another young life wrecked by her own excesses. 48 is too young for anyone.
