A very soulful Amazing Grace by Whitney..
As I sip Kopi-O kau kau, my feeling goes to Whitney –
Rest In Peace. Jesus Loves You.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest”. Matthew 11:28

This is my all time favorite duet, Whitney with Jermaine Jackson, whom I thought was the Jackson brother who was more talented than Michael. Thank God he didn’t cross over to mainstream.

I remember Whitney from her first hit, Saving all my love for you. A young, beautiful 18 year old with the class to do justice to such a great song. But like Michael Jackson with his Off the wall album, both became victims of their initial success.

Michael didn’t just want mainstream pop acceptance. He wanted to become his new audience, i.e. white. Whitney went on to marry Bobby Brown, who was touted as the new Michael Jackson in 1985.

The black artistes of today pale in comparison to them.

Yes Whitney Houston the golden girl of the 90s, of “Bodyguard” fame who wowed the world effortlessly with her “I will always love you” . I guess we will always love her!

Some lessons learnt from Whitney’s demise :
1) don’t ever marry a playboy (in her case Bobby Brown)
2) stay away from drugs (also anti-depressant)
3) stick to choir singing if can’t cope with fame and fortune

A very moving song for those of us facing difficult or challenging circumstances in an uncertain future.
Yes, she sings a great song of Hope & Faith in Believe (in Miracles). God really used her to let us know there’s Hope. If only we believe in Him.

Some prefer to remember Whitney of late 80’s till mid 90’s, when she was fabulous not influenced by drugs.
Similarly, some prefer to cherish the past Penang and ignore what’s happening to it right now.

If only Whitney stays rooted to her gospel upbringing……….. If only Penangites treasures the nature tranquility over the choked traffic …..
