Born on this date in 1963, one of the greatest voices ever in pop music, Whitney Houston.

Whitney scored several #1 hits, worked as an actress, producer, reality TV star, and even sang the Diet Coke jingle “Just for the taste of it”  in the mid-80’s.

We lost Whitney in February 2012 in what was ruled an “accidental drowning,” even though they found cocaine in her system.

But enough about that, let’s remember Whitney Houston for what she did best, sing and crank out catchy pop songs.  I chose “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” because recently it’s become something of a big request at weddings.  Enjoy, and remember.
