She was a tragic soul, with a voice like no other. Quite possibly the greatest female singer of all time, Whitney Elizabeth Houston is dead. According to The Associated Press, Houston’s publicist, Kristen Foster, confirmed that the superstar died this afternoon in Los Angeles, California. The cause of death is unknown as I pen this post. Whitney reigned over pop music from the late 1980′s until the late 1990′s before her career was derailed by allegations of substance abuse.
