I grew up with “The greatest Love of All” and had watched “The Bodyguard” over and over again. So it was a shock when I woke up this morning, and the news about Whitney Houston’s death flooded my timeline on Twitter.
Her death was confirmed by her publicist Kristen Foster according to AP:
Initial CNN report says that according to Lt Mark Rosen of the Beverly Hills Police Department, they received a 911 medical emergency call at 3:23 pm Saturday, US West Coast time (7:23 am Sunday, Philippine time) from the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Paramedics arrived at the hotel and was brought to the fourth floor where a woman was being revived by the hotel emergency personnel. At 3:55 pm, the woman identified as Whitney Houston, 48, was pronounced dead.
Police said there no signs of any criminal involvement in the death, detectives have begun a full investigation.
Alan Duke of CNN also reported that it was her bodyguard – incidentally named Rey – found her body and called the authorities.
Whitney Houston’s songs are always in the karaoke list in the Philippines. If you watch singing contests, there will always be a Whitney Houston song. The Bodyguard was a huge hit in the Philippines. She will always be remembered for her voice. One of the greatest artist of all time.
