Ol’ Skool Sunday: Dancing with the Ancestors

“Wow.” That’s all i said for about an hour last night after learning the tragic news of Whitney Houston’s death. She, like Heavy D, is a reminder to me of how many young people die each day for reasons (health, environmental, political, etc.) that are largely preventable. Although the cause of death for Ms. Houston is still being reported as unclear, i believe that her life (like far too many other young people) was taken too soon.

On this Ol’ Skool Sunday, i’m listening to some Whitney Houston songs that caused me to fall in love with the powerful voice and appreciate beautiful physical embodiment of all that was good about R&B. Rest in Power, Whitney Houston, and enjoy dancing with the ancestors.

Party Time!
