February 11th 2012
Sadly, this date will stay a crucial one, not only for the music industry alone but the world at large. For, that fateful day last February saw the silencing of iconic songbird Whitney Houston – aged just 48.
Although it is still incredibly difficult to come to terms with the tragic loss, we dedicate this week’s From The Vault to the most impressive vocalist in recent memory and arguably of all-time.
The haunting ‘Run To You’ from 1992’s monumental ‘Bodyguard OST’ is a vocal tour de force and stands as an ever-enduring masterpiece as well as a masterclass for any and every singer that followed. Its accompanying video beams iconic shots of an angelic Houston “running to us” in an immaculate setting – shots, in light of recent events, make for emotional viewing.
As words could not describe the immensity of her talent and statistics could not measure the enormity of reach, we figured it be best to let the music speak for itself.
Whitney Elizabeth Houston, we thank you for sharing your God-given talent with us. You will forever be The Voice. Rest In Peace.
