Whitney Houston: squandered talent of a record-breaking singer who had it all | Music | The Guardian
Her voice was clean and cool, full of melismatic embellishments. It spoke of dazzling virtuosity rather than raw power or emotions dredged from the depths of a troubled soul. Even when her public image spiralled out of control, her music didn't follow suit.

she didn't take risks with her emotions while singing, though the pyrotechnics were a reasonable facsimile.

larger-than-life voice, a wonder of nature (and the creme de la creme musical nurture).

while it seems you never found what you were looking for, RIP, whitney, you sure touched many people with your gifts and range, epic in your one-off way.

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
