    I am a big fan of yesteryear's Whitney and I wish the current Whitney all the best but it's hard for me to get in to her like I once was. The voice isn't there anymore and it makes me sad to listen to what she did to herself.

    I was just listening to I Look To You and wondered if there was a thread for Whitney on here, I love Whitney and I think out of her contemporaries (Madonna, Janet, Mariah) who released albums at that time, I Look To You was the best.

    Yeah her voice has changed but its not gone, its just changed, if she cleaned herself up properly she could easily get back to her normal self, her performance of I Didn't Know My Own Strength on Oprah was great:

    Whitney did well there but she's still nowhere close to what she once was. She struggles very hard to perform her old hits. I could pull up the disasters that are all over YouTube but I don't want to do that because I know this thread is to celebrate the incredible legend that is Whitney Houston. I do love her, I'm just really sad that her voice is gone due to drug abuse. I do agree that if she keeps herself clean and works on it, that she can restore her voice to a still very respectable level. Whitney at her worst is still better than most at their peak.

    ^ I agree she does seem to struggle a lot more with her older hits, around 2010 though she started to look a lot better on her Nothing But Love tour, but her voice was always going to change in old age, it happens to a lot of singers, the drugs and smoking doesn't help things.

    Anyway here's some of my favourite songs by Whitney:

    She was amazing. Lately not that much. I've noticed that she's lost much of her powerful voice. Still a great singer though in comparison to many of the young acts of today.

    Even if I had only one finger left I'd play for you - Elton John

    I love Whitney. She is my favourite "power voice" female singers. I always found her voice better than Mariah's. I wish her all the best.

    BTW, didn't Michael say once Whitney could sing the telephone book and it still would sound great?

    I always thought so too. I know Mariah often gets toted as having the greatest voice with the most octaves but to my ears, Whitney's powerful and effortless voice made Mariah sound like a little girl singing in to a hairbrush. Their duet is a great example of that.

    Yeah, I don't know who can sing how many octaves of the two (I guess they are pretty close to one another in that) but there's some "noise" in Mariah's voice I don't like - Whitney's voice always sounded "cleaner" to me. (I struggle to express what it is.)

    Don't get me wrong I am a fan of Mariah, but I really don't like her whistle, her voice is very impressive, but I would never rank her as high as Whitney, but I wouldn't say Whitney makes her look like a girl singing into a brush either in When You Believe, but it is made clear who is the better singer that's for sure. Having said that I do really like their duet.

    I do too, I just think Whitney sounds like the pro of the two. Anyone see their live performance of the song done years ago? I can't remember which award show it was but Whitney absolutely killed it and schooled Mariah in the process.
