This weekend the peerless Whitney Houston passed away. I never saw her in concert, I don’t think I owned many CD’s, and I am sure I wasn’t actually allowed to watch her movies. But I did love to sing her songs.
One of my favorite songs that she sang was When You Believe, for the Disney movie, The Prince of Egypt. Written by Babyface and Stephen Schwartz it was performed by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey.
Her lyrics spoke volumes of the strength of a woman, and the pain a woman could try to endure, and to the hope of something better.
I hope that she has found something better, more peaceful.
