Heaven also need talent … Whitney Houston


You’re a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine …

Whitney Houston, «One moment in time»

I do not accidentally start your article associated with such a sad theme, the words of the song of Whitney Houston «You — the winner, if you’re able to catch that moment in my life and make it shine …» That’s what you can say about most performer of this song. Indeed, in his life it just managed to catch the moment, the most appropriate and the only one who brought her to the Olympus of the world stage.

It is difficult, and in some sense wrong to write an article after the death of this great singer, as there is a feeling that only such a sad event can cause a few words about the man, but did not say anything, too, would be a crime.

For many of us, Whitney was an idol, legend, interesting creative personality, a great actress, a beautiful woman. Everyone is in it something for myself, something special, very important. And it only combines all these images — successfully united, always with a bright smile on her face. Only very close people could guess that does not always shine like she does not always she had reasons for that same dazzling smile.

Whitney Houston was born in New Jersey in a musical family. But the problem was that her mother and sister sang in the church choir, quite successfully, and they could not accept the fact that Whitney was more prone to the big stage of pop music. Fateful meeting became her visit to a nightclub, where she performed at the time, the legendary Clive Davis, who marked the beginning of a «new star».

Then we can say that Whitney Tutor his way and repertoire — she never agreed deliberately to look sexy or sing songs, devoid of meaning. She tried to create an image of a new star — a star with impeccable diction, text, wardrobe …

That is why Houston wrote many songs for her albums herself. For her, it was extremely important to express yourself than Galatea be one of the producers. Whitney’s been building his image, brick by brick, as if raising a wonderful castle, which, despite its unexpected death, was not destined to collapse.

In 1985 she was released her first album in which one of the top singles «I will save my love for you » Whitney wrote herself. From this period began a rapid ascent of the singer on a pedestal of glory. Her life was not sharp falls creative, she walked forward and upward, becoming more successful, more and more famous, more and more beloved singer. Also in 1985, the singer for the first time she won awards «Grammy».

They were successful and Whitney Hunt in the movie. In 90 years the world first saw the movie «The Bodyguard» («The Bodyguard»), who is loved by the public until now, as most actresses he had brought several awards. After that, she successfully co-starred in such films as «Waiting for a break» («Waiting to Exhale»), «The wife of a priest» («The Preacher’s Wife»), «The Princess Diaries — 1,2″ («The Princess Diaries1 , 2 ‘). The film «The wife of the priest» has received several awards Image Awards and MTV Movie Awards.

Whitney Houston is the winner of six awards «Grammy», thirty-winning Billboard Music Awards, twenty-two awards American Music Award, awards Emmy, seven awards Soul Train Music Awards, sixteen awards NAACP Image Awards, BET Lifetime Achievement Award and many other awards of the Phonographic Industry . And according to the Guinness Book of Records, Houston is an actress with the most awards (The Most Awarded Female Artist of All Time). According to estimates, the total volume of its records sold is 170 million units. According to the Recording Industry Association of America, Houston is the fourth singer in the list of the most commercially successful artists in the United States, certified copies of records which is 55 million units in the country. A Rolling Stone magazine included Houston’s list of 100 greatest singers.

In this article, I purposely did not address the topic of personal life of the singer, as I consider it impossible to evaluate the talent, based on the individual’s privacy. Yes, her life was not serene, but now that Whitney is no longer with us, is not so important what was happening behind the scenes, the important thing is that no one shone brighter on stage and more beautiful than she.

In conclusion, I would like to offer a preview video from one of her most popular songs, which fully reflects the feelings of excitement and life searching for this great woman.

Each day I live I want to be
A day to give the best of me
I’m only one, but not alone
My finest day is yet unknown
I wish every day that I live,
There was a day, which gave to the best that is in me.
I’m the only one, but not alone.
My perfect day is not yet known.
I broke my heart, fought every gain
To taste the sweet I face the pain
I rise and fall yet through it all
This much remains
I break my heart, fighting for every win.
In order to partake of all the benefits, I am faced with the pain.
I rise and fall …
It’s a lot of it remains.
I want one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity
I need a single moment in time,
When I’m more than I thought I could be.
When all of my dreams are within striking distance of the heart.
And the answers will depend on me.
Give me one moment in time,
When I compete with destiny.
Then this one moment in time
I’ll feel
Eternity.
I’ve lived to be the very best
I want it all, no time for less
I’ve laid the plans now lay the chance
Here in my hands
I lived to be the best.
I want it all, do not have time for anything less.
I made plans, I now consider the chance
Here in my hands.
Give me one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity
Give me one moment in time,
When I’m more than I thought I could be.
When all of my dreams are within striking distance of the heart.
And the answers will depend on me.
Give me one moment in time,
When I compete with destiny.
Then this one moment in time
I’ll feel
Eternity.
You’re a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine
You — the winner in this life
If you catch this one moment in time,
And make it glow.

I will be
I will be
I will be free
I will be
I will be free
Give me one moment in time,

When I compete with destiny.

I will,
I will,
I will be free.
I will,
I will be free.
