Music impresario, Clive Davis, took to KOST 103.5 radio show to discuss the possibility of new music from Whitney Houston.  Davis simply echoed what she herself announced last month: she is on a long-course recovery from alcohol and drug addiction.

Davis also pointed out the fact that Whitney is also battling an addiction to cigarettes which is detrimental to a singer's vocal cords.  He said he hope she recovers soon but noted that there will be no new music until her "golden voice is back".


Listen, I love Whitney Houston.  God knows I do, but I think it's a wrap on her ever getting her 'golden voice' back.  You can't squander a gift that God has given you and expect to just get it back.  I'm not saying that she'll never be able to sang again but it just won't be the same.  You see Whitney Houston wasn't just a singer.  She was on a whole 'nother level as far as singing is concerned.  Honestly, I can't really think of anyone I could put in the same conversation as her (as far as her in her prime) when it comes to singing besides maybe Gladys Knight, Luther Vandross, and Aretha Franklin.  She was an effortless singer whose vocals were like water --they just flowed.  She didn't have to screech or holler to hit a note.  It just poured from her soul as easily as ones breathing.  
So here's to hoping she has a wonderful and full recovery as far as her addiction is concerned, but as far as her vocals.  I'm not sure if a full recovery is possible.

  1. Whitney's battle with drug addiction has been placed under strict scrutiny of the public, but she's undergoing treatment to relieve herself of her addictions.
