As a young child Whitney Houston was the epitome of a diva in my eyes. Her undeniable stage presence would leave me in awe whenever I got a glimpse of her on TV - there isn't anyone else who can quiet hit those riffs the way she does. Her vocal control and projection is almost unmatched and she managed to promote Gospel, R&B and Pop while still being one of the first black female vocalists to gain such worldwide popularity. Whitney's South African Live show from 1994 is one I've played over and over again. She's no longer with us but her immense talent lives on. Check out the music video below too to see just how similar she is when singing live! Enjoy.
