Whitney Houston died 7 years ago today

It is so hard to believe Whitney Houston died 7 years ago today on this date. When I first heard about her passing, I was sad. It was as if her death was not even real. I wasn't sad just because she died, but how she died. She basically drowned to death in a bathtub in a hotel room in Beverly Hills, CA. Houston had a long history of substance abuse; however, I always believed in her and always felt she would get through it. 

Sadly, she lost her battle.


When people criticized her voice, I remembered the voice she once had. That is the voice I will always remember when I think about Whitney Houston and the gift she brought to this world. She has always been amazing and quite possibly the best female pop singer to ever exist on earth.



To honor Whitney Houston today and her life, I want to share my recording of "I Will Always Love You" from Smule.




If you cannot see the video, simply click here right now to listen to rendition of this beautiful my song. 



Rest in Peace Whitney Houston. You will be forever missed. (August 9, 1963-February 11, 2012)

Main tumse pyar karthee hoon

I Will Always Love You is a song about finding love and not letting go it. If you truly love someone, you will always love them no matter what happens in life. And if that love is meant to be, it will never die. They say it takes a day to know someone, but it takes an entire lifetime to forget them. This song really sends a message and when it is complement by beautiful vocals (especially those of Whitney Houston and Dolly Parton) the song speaks for itself. I decided to record this song on Smule tonight.
 
 
I love this song for many reasons. I can relate to this song in many ways, especially now as an adult. A heart cannot be replaced, as real love can't ever die.
 
To listen to my rendition of the classic "I Will Always Love You" simply watch (or listen) to the video above. If you cannot hear it, just click here right now to listen. Main tumse pyar karthee hoon, Sumit.

I Have Nothing by Lashonda Gibson featuring Sarah Afshar

Lashonda is one of best friends. So, when she invited me to sing "I Have Nothing" with her on Smule, I was honored, as I am a huge fan of the song. I remember being a 11 years old and hearing this song for the first time and thinking how incredible it was. Now, I am 37 years old and singing this on an app with my best friend using my iPhone.
 
I will get into more depth as to why I love this song at another time, until then, enjoy this song. If you cannot hear the video, simply click here to listen to us sing this song. It is always an honor singing with this wonderful and talented woman.

I Will Always Love You by Sarah Afshar

I Will Always Love You is probably the most popular Whitney Houston song to exist. She took a wonderful classic which was originally performed by Dolly Parton and made it even more amazing than what it was. Granted Parton's rendition is unique and it is her song, Whitney Houston made this song. Of course, I will already remember Whitney in her prime before darkness invaded her life. She was a real, tried and true talent and those who bash her are simply jealous because she was one of a kind.

 
I decided to go onto Smule and record this song. I know my rendition pales in comparison to Whitney and Dolly's, but I had fun and I love this song in so many ways. To listen to my rendition of I Will Always Love You simply watch the video above. If you cannot hear the video, simply click here now. And make sure you are wearing headphones also.

I Believe In You And Me by Sarah Afshar

When I first heard this song, I was watching the movie "The Preachers Wife" featuring the late and great Whitney Houston. I was amazed at the dynamics of the song, yes, but the soul she exuded was just incredible. And lets not forget about the message this song sends too. I decided to go on Smule and take the risk of recording this today.

 
To listen to my rendition of this amazing song, simply watch (or listen) to the video above. If it doesn't play, just click here now to listen to my cover.

Didn't We Almost Have It All by Sarah Afshar

Didn't We Have It All is one of those songs that makes me think of Whitney Houston. Granted this is her song, but it was one of her songs that really reminds me of how incredible her voice was. And it is how I will always remember her because it was who she was before darkness invaded her life.

 
I decided to hop on one of my favorite apps right now, Smule and record it. I added a little more rock to make it roll, as the soul was already there. Whitney Houston was definitely one of a kind and will never be replaced.
 
To listen to my recording of this amazing song, simply watch the video above. If you cannot see or hear the video, just click here right now. A word of advice (and I know I have shared this already) listen to this wearing headphones.
