Whitney Hits A Sour Note In Tobago

Whitney Hits A Sour Note In Tobago According to our friends over at AOL Black Voices, Whitney Houston’s recent concert at Tobago’s Plymouth Jazz Festival yesterday (April 27th) was a shambles:

The ‘Greatest Love of All’ singer performed on the last night of the festival, just before headliner Rod Stewart took the stage.

Houston opened her show with ‘Its Not Right, But Its Okay’ and by her third song, ‘Saving All My Love,’ the once soprano’s newfound tenor tone was in full rasp.

Delivering only seven songs during her 30 minute set, Houston was reportedly paid a whopping $3 million for the show.

Though journalists were flown in from all over the world, Houston refused to allow media and photographers within 200 feet of the stage. She brought her own photographer to the venue and only he was allowed to shoot her performance.

Wearing a white gown with a single shoulder strap, Houston skipped around the stage and continuously shouted to the crowd: “I love you Trinidad !’

Unfortunately, the concert was in Tobago!

Locals shouted back each time: “This is Tobago!”

The 44-year-old music icon ambitiously attempted ‘And I’ll Always Love You,’ however she struggled through the build up and knew better than attempt the high finish.

She bowed and then squatted after her pseudo-encore of Chaka Khan’s ‘I’m Every Woman,’ which Houston also recorded for ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack.

With the continued reports of Whitney’s diminished vocal state, I’m beginning to wonder whether making a ‘comeback’ is in her best interest (the album is slated for a November release). For, I’m more than sure she’ll be torn to shreds by the media and public alike should she attempt to turn in such performances back home in the States. Here’s hoping she gets herself together ASAP.

Your thoughts?

    She sounded good. These concerts bring her money and build her confidence. Without these overseas concerts she won’t make a comeback…she’s been out of the industry for eight years so she should keep doing more performances in preperation for her album promo.
