On my dinner break from CBS42 last night, I heard the sad news that Whitney Houston died at the age of 48. She was in L.A. attending pre-Grammy parties. While, the cause of death is not known, yet, the interwebs are going craayyzy.
I pray for her family and friends. Of course, I never met Houston and I’m really just one of millions of fans writing personal opinions that mean nothing in the grand scheme of things… but nevertheless. I will never forget, Nance (my mom) and I cruising in her Mazda jamming to “The Bodyguard” soundtrack on cassette tape. I thought I sounded just like her when she belted out that incredible note in “I Will Always Love You.” God Bless Nance for telling me I did. In some weird way, I thank Whitney Houston for teaching me you can sing as loud as you possibly want when no one (except your mother) is around.

We lead the news last night with the cold temperatures. It was down to 18 degrees last night! We then had a short VO (voice over) on Houston’s death with a push to the Grammy Awards. Grammy officials were busy last night revamping the show to include a major tribute. The Grammy’s will air tonight on our channel at 7 P.M. ET
