Whitney Houston Dies at 48. A Legacy of Musical Talent

Whitney Houston was a Pop Diva of the 80's and 90's. with a musical career prior to that time and after.  We all have our favorite Whitney songs.  I loved her performance of "The Greatest Love of All", "I Wanna Dance with Somebody", "I Believe in You and Me" and my all time favorite is "I Will Always Love You".  I enjoyed her performances in The Body Guard and every Christmas we enjoy watching The Preacher's Wife. 

She is now among the many muscial giants who have passed on.  She will be missed and may her family, friends and fans find comfort in memories of her and the tremendous musical legacy she left behind.

Soul Train's Creator Dies at 75

I grew up on Soul Train.  I was a teenager when it first aired.   Top artists of the times appeared on Soul Train.  However, what stood out most for me, was the awesome dancing.  To this day, when you get a group of adults together at a party with great dance music, the "Soul Train" line is formed.  And the memories take over even though the body can not necessarily take you there!! 

Don Cornelius was clearly a legend who will be missed by family, friends and admirers.
