Remembering the Legendary Whitney Houston

During the eve of one of the biggest annual award celebrations in the music industry, comes the devastating news that legendary icon, Whitney Houston has died, she was only 48. The singer’s death was confirmed by her publicist, Kristen Foster, only hours before Houston was due to perform at music mogul Clive Davis’s annual pre-Grammy party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

“I can confirm that Whitney Houston was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. We received a call at 3:43 p.m. from hotel security and Beverly Hills fire and police responded minutes later,” Beverly Hills Police Lieutenant Mark Rosen tells PEOPLE. As to whether there was any evidence of drugs or foul play, Rosen responded: “At this time, there’s no obvious evidence of foul play or cause of death.”

The terrible news has come as a complete shock to all and reactions from fans and celebrities flood the internet:

Dolly Parton, who wrote “I Will Always Love You,” said, “mine is only one of the millions of hearts broken over the death of Whitney Houston. I will always be grateful and in awe of the wonderful performance she did on my song and I can truly say from the bottom of my heart, ‘Whitney, I will always love you. You will be missed.'”

Another entertainment legend, Quincy Jones, said he was “absolutely heartbroken” by the news. “She was a true original and a talent beyond compare.”

I’d like to take this time to remember Whitney Houston, she is a true legend and undoubtedly one of the greatest singers and performers of our generation. The world has lost an icon today, may she always be remembered for the amazing contribution that she gave us all, her music that became a soundtrack for us all as well as her unforgettable soulful voice, she was and will always remain a superstar in our hearts.


Beyonce & Jay-Z Official Birth Announcement & Glory Debut

Blue Ivy is literally only two days old and is already featured on her proud daddy’s latest record. Jay-Z has written this song in order to honor his newborn daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, calling it “Glory”. In the latest song you can hear the newly made father gushing over his “greatest creation” as well as alluding to other details regarding Blue’s conception in Paris, and references the tragedy the couple endured regarding a previous miscarriage.

In a joint statement, Beyonce & Jay-Z set the record straight about some of the details of Blue Ivy’s birth, including that it wasn’t a scheduled C-section (as had been reported):

Hello Hello Baby Blue!

We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012. Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives.We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.

– Beyoncé & JAY Z

Personally I respect the way in which the couple dealt with terrible experience of miscarrying before their Baby Blue, just because they are celebrities doesn’t mean that they have to publicize every detail of their lives. I also feel that the way in which they have celebrated the birth of Blue Ivy as well as included the memory of what once could have been was done tastefully and brings tears to my eyes when hearing the lyrics. This illustrates the unbreakable bond and strength that the duo possess and I truly respect how positive and strong Beyonce has stood during all the negative press, she is truly one of a kind and will make an amazing mother, another reason to add why I continue to love and support her ❤

Overall the song is very inspiring with heart felt lyrics that require you to have those tissues at the ready, check out the song below as well as those lyrics!

Once again Congratulations Beyonce & Jay-Z!

“GLORY” Lyrics

The most amazing feeling I feel
Words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real
Baby I paint the sky blue
My greatest creation was you

False alarms and false starts
All made better by the sound of your heart
All the pain of the last time
I pray so hard it was the last time
Your mama said that you danced for her
Did you wiggle your hands for her?

Everything that I pray for
God’s gift I wish I would have prayed more
God makes no mistakes
I’ve made a few
Rough sledding here and there
But I made it through

I wreak havoc on the world
Get ready for part two
A younger, smarter, faster me
Saw a pinch of hove
A whole glass of B

The most amazing feeling I feel
Words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real
Baby I paint the sky blue
My greatest creation was you

Your grandpop died of n*gga failure
Then he died of liver failure
Deep down he was a good man
God d*mn I can’t deliver failure

Bad*ss lil’ hove
Two years old shopping on Savile Row
Wicked *ss little B
Hard not to spoil you rotten lookin’ like little me
The most beautifulest thing in this world
Is daddy’s little girl

You don’t yet know what swag is
But you was made in Paris
And mama woke up the next day and shot her album package
Last time the miscarriage was so tragic
We was afraid you’d disappear
But nah baby you magic

So there you have it sh*t happens
Just make sure the plane you on is bigger than your carry on baggage
Everybody go through stuff
Life is a gift love open it up

You’re a child of destiny
You’re the child of my destiny
You’re my child with the child from Destiny’s Child
That’s a hell of a recipe

The most amazing feeling I feel
Words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real
Baby I paint the sky blue
My greatest creation was you
