Re: Whitney Houston Dead at 48
Definitely a sad loss ive always liked her a lot.
The other day the topic of was Whitney the best American pop female singer over the last generation or so (20 -30 years)? I think so. I think there are few you put up there with her like Mariah and Celine.
But I like Mariah a lot better. I dont know really how to describe it, but listening to Whitney can be tiring after a while. Mariah, to me, is a lot easier and "interesting" or "fun" to listen to. But when i compare them i think Whitney has much more range and ability. Whitney is definitely more pure and thats what makes her so great. Besides Whitney's deep emotional drop she occasionally adds she doesnt really put any twists on songs she just sings them the way they were meant to be sung, and does it amazingly. Mariah obviously has range close to Whitney's, but shes more interesting or has a sweeter voice to me.
So Whitney to me is better because she does things perfectly and amazingly and the way her songs are meant to be sung, but i like Mariah better because, just because....
