It wasn't just the voice.
It was the light we saw in her eyes when she sang.
She looked like she was tapping into a well of creativity and talent that was continually replenished to overflowing by the Creator Himself.
I think that’s exactly the way it happened.
She sang songs from her heart
and they touched ours
leaving an indelible mark on a generation.
Memories of millions of lifetimes are wrapped up in the lyrics of her songs
making us feel young again whenever they’re played.
I pray that what we’ll remember most about her is
her smile that could light up the world
her eyes that sparkled with a secret only her song could reveal
and that voice….
Thank you, Whitney, for sharing your gift with us.
Go with God and rest in peace.
