Celebs Pay Homage To Whitney Houston On The Second Anniversary Of Her Death

February 11, 2014  |  

Whitney Houston is one of those rare artists whose influence spans generations, race, and gender. Everyone respected and revered the Jersey girl known as “the voice” for her remarkable singing ability, and similarly millions across the globe mourned her death when she passed away February 11, 2012.

Though we could go on and on about why we miss the woman who brought us some of the best love ballads ever sang, not to mention the coolest videos, we thought it would be great to hear from other artists who’ve sought to live up to the standard she set and other entertainers who still remain in awe of her talent to this day. So, when gospel artist Kiki Sheard, soul singer Leela James, and actor Stephen Bishop came by our offices to talk about their work, we also asked them to share what impact Whitney’s life work had on them and how they still remember her to this day.

Check out the video as celebs pay homage to Whitney Houston up top.

    whitney was such a God fearing woman. She loved the Lord and he heard her cries. Though it still doesn’t feel real that she’s no longer w/us, we can all rest assured that she’s w/her Lord and Savior. It’s like a Shakespearian tragedy.

    I was so sad When Whitney pass away, she was making her comeback and It is a loss to the world, her family and especially to Chrissy. I read Cissy book and she said the doorbell rung several times and she said that was Whitney saying Goodbye to her. Cissy is so brave and classy throughout Whitney passing and I wish that Chrissy did not marry Nick , I did not like the way he left her when he said I am going to pick you up when they show the realtiy show. I hope Chrissy do not blow that money because Whitney work hard to get it.

    Two years ago I was looking at a youtube video of Whitney Houston talking about how much she wanted Aaliyah to play Sparkle (Whitney personally picked her and prefered her for the role). Mind you I had two windows open. When I got done watching the video I exited out of it and went to the other window that was open. The window was automatically on yahoo my jaw dropped when the second news pane flashed and in big letters I read the words, “Singer Whitney Houston dies”. I just knew it was a joke until I turned it on CNN and see that it was already being reported. I will never forget! I must admit though I thought her first death anniversery would be big but it really wasn’t people barely talked about it but I’m glad to see its different this go round. RIP Whitney! She’s one of those legends who will always be rememebered on the daily; not just her birth and death days.
    “Well theres a bridge and theres a river; that I still must cross. As I’m going on my journey; oh I might be lost and theres a road I have to follow; a place I have to go but noone told me just how to get there but when I get there I’ll know”.

    Today is my sister’s 30th birthday and Whitney is her all time favorite sister. We was at her party at her home celebrating her 28th when we heard the news of her death 2 years ago and my sister was crushed that her favorite singer of all time died on her birthday. Whitney was born with that talent, her personal life wasn’t squeaky clean, but this woman loved the lord and may she RIParadise.

    Today is a very sad day for me indeed.

    Two years ago, we lost one of the World’s ‘Most Talented, Most Influential & Most Innovative’ Popular vocalists the music industry has ever known and one of the three- ‘Greatest’ Contemporary, Pop, singers ever, next to Aretha Franklin & Mariah Carey. Her Beauty, Poise, Style, Grace, Elegance, Power, Faith & Humility was all God- given.

    She was our first ‘Black- Female, Global, Superstar’ and with that came so many trials, hardships and tribulations to which, in the end, she lost herself and just fell tired of. I still, vividly, remember when you were ignorantly booed at the Soul Train Awards: 1988/89, by your very own people, and accused of being a ‘Sell- out’; many Black people still feel this way sadly. However, what we tend to forget is that if it wasn’t for you… the ‘First- Soldier’, Beyonce, Rihanna, Alicia Keys & Co. would be able to do what they are doing today.
