We Will Always Love You

I must have been about eight years of age when I first saw a singer by the name of Whitney Houston performing her hit "I Wanna Dance with Somebody." I remember being transfixed by Whitney, not only because of her mesmerising voice but also because I thought that she was possibly one of the most beautiful women I had ever laid eyes on. I grew up listening to Whitney Houston's music and I spent countless hours dancing and singing to her songs, in both good times and bad. 

Aside from her many musical accomplishments, Whitney was also a model in the early eighties and was signed to Wilhelmina Models. Throughout her career as a singer, Whitney was photographed by many of the greats including Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Meisel and Francesco Scavullo. Whitney Houston's talent, illuminating beauty and humanity brought so much joy to our lives and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to see her perform in Australia three years ago. I am deeply saddened to hear of her passing. We will always love you Whitney.
