Whitney Houston’s life should have been a triumph. A phenomenal talent with a once-in-a-lifetime voice, Houston became an 80’s musical icon along with other one-named artists like Prince, Michael, Janet and Madonna. She married fellow singer Bobby Brown and the two embarked on what could have been a fairy-tale life.
But it wasn’t. Houston battled with drug abuse, and ended up dead in a California hotel room before she was 50 years old. Her daughter with Brown, Bobbi Kristina Brown,would end up dead under eerily similar circumstances just two years later.
