Whitney Houston has received negative reviews from some Australian fans after her performance in Brisbane. However, I also read some Australian newspapers and some fans in Sydney Australia fans say her singing was solid.
Whitney was the first modern black female pop star to crossover and become a superstar. Now some people say Diana Ross achieved this before Houston but I disagree. Ross was successful in the Supremes but she had moderate success as a solo artist. Houston’s debut album was huge in the mid 1980s. Houston was popular in the African American community, mainstream America, and across the world. Houston opened the door for Beyonce, Rihanna, Mary J Blige, and Janet Jackson.
I am tired of the haters picking on Whitney Houston.
Houston is a recovering drug addict, and it is obvious some fans don’t understand how serious drug addiction is. Whitney is giving 110%, but the drugs has affected her vocal cords. The jazz singer Billie Holiday was a drug addict but I doubt Holiday received this kind of scorn and hatred.
Whitney is trying her best. Some people need to get a life I am serious! If people think Whitney is going to sound like she did twenty years ago when she was young they will be very disappointed. I feel sorry for the people that actually think Whitney can belt out “I Will Always Love You” and hit the high notes. Some fans need to return to the real world those days are over.
Whitney’s voice is lower and more husky because she is a smoker. Whitney is forty-six years old, she is healthy, but she is also a mature woman. Whitney’s voice was going to change anyway.
She is trying her best people need to lay off Whitney and let girlfriend sing!
