A little more than two years ago, Whitney Houston passed on at the age of forty-eight. Her death was an unexpected tragedy, and in her wake, she left a sea of potential and a teenage girl who really needed her mother. In the time since, her fans have grieved, wondered what-if and at times, gotten mad at Whitney herself for never completely kicking the habit that almost killed her. For one single day, however, is worth putting aside all that frustration and focusing on what actually was.

Whitney Houston’s voice was an incredible gift. For more than twenty years, she thrilled fans with her unique talent and her captivating stage presence. She hit notes no one else could, and she opened our hearts like few performers are capable of doing. She was also a talented actress and one of the greatest reality television personalities of all time. She could have done anything she set her mind too. Thank God she mostly settled on singing because the catalog she left behind, while not expansive enough, still offers more than its share of thrills, shudders and “how did she’s…”.

Today, Whitney would have been fifty years old. In her honor, we’ve decided to embed five of her classic videos below. You may not have time to listen to all of them right now, but do yourself a favor and fire up at least one. It will brighten your day and momentarily honor a woman who brought a lot of smiles to a lot of faces.
