The Supreme Diva. The VOICE. Whitney Houston.

Two years y’all. It’s STILL not real to me but we can’t continue on the day without giving Whitney a shout-out. She is the gold standard. No matter HOW great an artist of today is or will be, Whitney will ALWAYS be better. Many have come close, but she remains untouchable. We DO know that she’s up in Heaven showing OUT in the choir! So here are few of my all-time favorite Whitney Houston moments.

1) THIS. PERFORMANCE. It’s a cool 10:00 long but if you have the time, you won’t regret it. This is how you perform: a band, a stunning dress, and a microphone. This is how you control your voice. This is how you sing with an emotion. This is how you perform without just belting or shouting in a microphone. Her tone is crystal freaking clear.

2) Another live performance that needs to be mentioned. I would DIE if she ever told me to “Shoop” with her. The important parts of this video is the tender moment with her daughter and Monica. Sometimes we forget that Monica can BLOW and Whitney approved.

3) Carrie Underwood, we’ll let you finish BUT Whitney and Brandy had the BEST made for TV Movie-Musical. HANDS. DOWN. You might even be able to find the whole movie online if you search….. 😉

5) This.

6) BET Awards Tribute

Now BET mostly gets it wrong. That award show can be very embarrassing to watch. After the Michael Jackson tribute, I think we were all worried at the what they would throw together for Ms. Houston.  When I say that they got this tribute all the way right? Monica and Brandy came to snatch wigs. And Cissy….okay…I had to stop because tears were welling up. (This wasn’t about hitting the right notes so don’t even come for Momma.

Whitney is, was, and will continue to be music to me. It just doesn’t get better. We miss and love you Nippy!!!!

What are some your favorite Whitney moments?
