Whitney Houston - The Greatest Love of All
In this difficult time we call life, let’s take a moment and think about the lyrics to this song. It’s saying that all of us humans, particularly children, need to be able to love ourselves.
That’s such a powerful message, especially in a ballad. This is one of the most powerful love ballads ever written, and the object of affection is oneself. It’s free of any pretension, irony or subversive messages. It’s just saying, love yourself.
And if you can do that, you can do anything.
This song is dedicated to you.
I just want to remark that it seems like a lot of white people are clamoring around what Kevin Costner had to say about her. It was a lovely speech, but it no only did it come off as “I was the reason Whitney ever started working in films,” it boiled down to, “And it happened because I am white.”
Thank you Kevin Costner for being Whitney’s white cinema savior, while effectively talking more about yourself at her funeral than you talked about Whitney. I felt like I was watching a clip of the help at this woman’s funeral.
I think the most moving speeches were delivered by her Assistant/Driver, Ray and by her sister. Two of the people who knew her most intimately. I was also really moved by the stories presented by Alicia Keys and Cece Winans.
Damn, Essence ran this in their March edition. It’s probably been sitting in my PO box for a week or so.
Nothing’s firm yet, but EW has confirmed that plans are underway to honor the singer during the show that airs live from the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.
Entertainment Weekly GRAMMYs Tribute is being planned.
