    Cissy does have an incredible voice as does Gary..Beautiful tribute..As far as her addiction goes so what..Her addiction does not simplify everything she was. everything she did..Or makes her passing any less painful..Unless you walked a mile in her shoes..Who are people to judge..We as humans sometimes fall victims to the weaknesses of the world..some we overcome and some that overcome us..and in spite of Whitney's weaknesses she was a Voice and talent like no other....

Still unmatched by any other!!Whit...I love you and feel so blessed to know that you are an angel watching over us all!!

    What a beautiful tribute to one of the greatest talents this world has ever seen! Her nick name, "The Voice" says it all. Cissy and Gary sounded incredible. I enjoyed Monica and Brandy too. I did not know Whitney personally, but I was blessed with an opportunity to see her live in concert, and I will forever cherish that experience. Her memory and music will live on! Please continue to pray for her family. God bless!

    I am devastated that Whitney died. I was one of her biggest fans. I have almost everything she's ever done. I am very moved by the tribute to her life. May God rest her soul.

    Drug addicts die. It's not sad, it's inevitable. I'm so sick of hearing about her. She had all this money and fame and yet instead of being a role model for her fans she chose to melt crack cocaine in a spoon. Good riddance.
