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….

That voice.

Thank you, Whitney, for sharing your gift with us.

Go with God and rest in peace.
