Sunday Session – Whitney & Mariah
I have a feeling there will be a bit of Whitney Houston as part of most people’s Sunday Session today – hoping Thea from Do I Really Wanna Blog is a Whitney fan!
I loved Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey growing up. As a young singer myself (I was head chorister in my church choir, I’ll have you know!) I idolised them and wanted to sing just like them.
Now, that was never going to happen but I remember singing along to their songs A LOT when I was a teenager, trying to perfect their intricate vocal gymnastics.
Whitney’s untimely passing reminded us all of what a beautiful and talented soul she was and brought back all those memories that I held of her music.
I especially loved “The Bodyguard” soundtrack and want to share two of my favourites from that album today.
“I’m Every Woman” is my favourite – I love the song and I love the filmclip – she’s looks so radiant, doesn’t she?
I also love “I Have Nothing” – the mix of softness and power really makes this song.
Whitney’s passing also brought to mind how I first thought she was the amazing voice behind “Vision of Love”, before I knew that Mariah Carey actually sung it. Doesn’t Mariah look fantastic, she should have stuck to the ingenue look rather than the sultry look she now favours…
This my other favourite from her first album is ‘Make It Happen” – again, such a vibey, positive song, how can you not feel inspired to make it happen for yourself?
Whitney and Mariah, I salute you, your beauty, your talent and your incredible music.
Happy Sunday to you all!
