Just A Handful Of Black Women Who Could Have Tributed Whitney Houston Better Than Christina Aguilera
This year the American Music Awards tapped Christina Aguilera to tribute Whitney Houston on the 25th anniversary of Houston’s iconic film The Bodyguard. Though it’s been five years since Houston passed, she left such a mark on the music industry, we’ll be paying homage to her in one way or another for years to come.
Aguilera has always had a strong voice. And even though she wouldn’t have been my first choice, there was no doubt that she could pull it off. But apparently, that was not the case. There were pitch issues, some of the notes were sour. And it just didn’t translate. It really troubles me that when Black icons pass away, these award shows would rather utilize anyone White than call a Black vocalist who could do Whitney and her legacy some justice.
Pink later acknowledged that the face was not in response to Aguilera’s performance.
Speaking of that, let’s discuss, shall we. There are several.
I know she doesn’t have the same name recognition as Christina but still, the voice is there. And that’s what matters.
LOL…ok back to the list.
