I recoil a bit at the "best singer ever" sentiment She had a great voice and a lot of talent, but there's no way in hell she had the depth of Billie Holiday or Judy Garland, to name two others that are often spoken of in the same terms. And I'd probably put Streisand above her as well.

Hell, there are many people that prefer Mariah Carey, though I never had a dog in that hunt. Neither really released a lot of great tracks IMO.

Aretha usually is placed at the top.

What the fuck. What a great artist, who had one of the best voices ever. RIP Whitney Houston.

I'm pretty sure they will pay tribute to her at the Grammys tonight. Wow. Very sad.

Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse are gone. Bobby Brown and Pete Doherty are still here. Doesn't seem fair, does it?

To those damning Bobby Brown for still being alive, is there actual proof that he is fully responsible for the drug issues that Whitney had?

i don't know if she ever said he was responsible, but she did say the two of them did do drugs together. purely speculation, but if he didn't get the ball rolling, he at least kept it rolling and got her into harder stuff. for all we know, she could've smoked pot all throughout the 80s - well before she even knew him. plus if he was doing drugs too, it'd be hard to fight the temptation to not join in too, even if you're trying to stop.

Thanks Khanada.

So to imply that he should be dead instead of Whitney would be a pretty dumb thing to say.

Yes it is a dumb thing to say

From what I understood it was said that while Bobby liked the weed, it was actually Whitney who got him into coke. She had dabbled with that long before they got together. Of course, his abusive ways likely didn't help any attempts she may have made to stay clean.

Anyways am absolutely devastated by this news. So sad. I wish she had followed a different path. Truly one of the greatest voices ever known to us and the songs themselves are immortal classics. Fell in love to songs like Saving All My Love and You Give Good Love.

here are her isolated vocals from "How Will I Know" -- i'd agree that her voice didn't have the depth and subtlety of other vocalists, but as an instrument of pure power and clarity, hard to match:

Whitney Houston’s isolated vocal track on “How...

Whitney Houston opened up the Grammys show and I will never forget Edge giving props to her. Check out at 1:03.

^ Bono also gave her a big shout out at the end of their performance of "Get On Your Boots" at the Grammys in 2009.

I don't remember exactly but he said something like "Can we get Whitney Houston performing in here?" or something like that. Sorry if this has already been discussed. But, yeah.

Very sad. Her voice was beautiful and so was she.

I bought her Super Bowl anthem CD back in 1991 because I thought it was so great, still have the CD.

RIP Whitney
