    No cause of death has been released. She's been spiraling for the last few years. Damned celebrity leaches sucked the life out of her.

    I had hoped she would recover her singing career. Sad to see another loss of such great talent.

    it is a shame such a wonderful voice she had. I just hope she has found her peace. I have condolences for her family however I think she died the moment she met Bobby Brown.

    Yeh I did, and looked her up on Wikipedia. She was an American singer. TBH I think I might have heard of her at sometime, but couldn't think what she did though apart from what I read on the Wiki.

    EDIT:

    BTW I just phoned a friend in Hangzhou, and he'd never heard of her either.

    a song she was very well known for

    I'm showing my age again. :eek: I just assumed that everybody would know the name because of "the voice" - she had a phenomenal range and clarity in her heyday. It's always sad to lose a great talent. Sobering too.... I'll be that age in six weeks.

    Me tooo! I totally forgot she was Dionne Warwick's niece!

    I have to post this. Her own words were SO prophetic to the road in life that she eventually took.
    MAN! how crisp, clear and piercing her voice as in this song!

    The Sea of Tranquility
    A tragic cautionary tale that will go ignored as it has in the past (Amy Winehouse, Kurt Colbain, Keith Moon, Jimi Hendricks, Janis Joplin, etc.). Celebrity brings big fame, big money and big excess. Tragic not because of her celebrity but because it's always tragic when one dies so young and for so little purpose. Are you listening Lindsey Lohan?

    neither Here nor There
    Though we don't yet know the official cause of death, her own words sum things up for me-"crack is whack". Addiction is a terrible thing, even more so for the loved ones than the addict themselves. My thoughts go out to her daughter and the rest of her family. While her music wasn't my cup of tea, there's no denying her talent. Also, this should be yet another reminder to everyone that money doesn't buy happiness. Value the important things in life. R.I.P., Ms.Houston.
