The above video is from a performance of Whitney’s at the LG Arena in Birmingham recently…About 3:20 into the video, you will hear Whitney kinda butcher the “I Will Always Love You” ditty…
She’s back, she does a decent job on most of it…but is she at the level that she once was? (I’ll answer that: ’no’) There have been reports all over the world on Whitney’s live performances: [pullquote quote="Houston, one of pop's all-time best-selling artists, had been on a hiatus from music as she battled drug addiction and ended a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown. But with her new CD, "I Look to You," she returned on the top of the charts and declared herself healthy and free from substance abuse. The superstar has been on a world tour to promote the CD, which has sold more than 1 million copies in the United States alone. However, the tour has been troubled; performances in Australia and elsewhere were negatively received by some fans and critics, who complained Houston did not showcase the majestic voice she is known for. Video snippets of her performances showed Houston sweating and struggling to hit notes, leading some to wonder about her health." credit="ABC News"]
One thing is for sure: The crowd loves her, and maybe with good health she’ll be back better than ever!
