I could swear that Debi Thomas skated to one of Whitney's songs at the 87 Skate Canada Gala. I used to have that as part of my Skating Video Library, but it got taped over accidentally, so I can't go back and check.

Anyone else remember Debi skating to Whitney? I could also swear it was I Know Him So Well, but as I said I can't get the tape out to check sadly. Maybe it's my memory playing tricks on me, but I could swear Debi skated this number.

It would great that if I am remembering right, it's over at YouTube.

I thought Nancy skated to "I Want to Run to You", but I can't find it on youtube. I did find Tonya Harding from '86 SA gala skating to "Saving All My Love".

Beyonce hasn't said anything yet...


That's because all of the attention in the entertainment world has switched from the pictures of Ivy Blue released on Friday to Whitney, who passed away on Saturday. Her spotlight has gone black.

Nice.....

I remember that, too, which dates us both--I found it on a list of her programs from 1994 :slinkaway.

I think Jill Trenary skating to Whitney's version of "I will always love you."

Grishuk and Platov skated to it too in 1994: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUdP1356OSo

I remember "One Moment in Time" having been regularly used by skaters at exhibitions in late 80s/early 90s, especially as it was created and recorded specifically for the 1988 NBC Summer Olympics telecasts...so it was a natural fit with skaters with Olympic aspirations or past Olympians.

Dorothy Hamill performed to it at the Dec '88 Landover World Pros. Soon after, Jill Trenary skated to the song at the '89 Worlds, Paris, exhib gala.

Furthermore, I recall, but cannot pinpoint the year, when "One Moment in Time" served as the group-finale number for one of the Tom Collins shows. Most likely, this was '89 or '90, since the song's big popularity followed the the '88 summer games.

Amazed that Jennifer Hudson didn't breakdown during her tribute performance at the Grammy's tonight. She was *really* battling her emotions, but still pulled it off and pulled it off w/class and strength. Kudos to her and to the Grammy's production team on what they came up w/for the Tribute. It was absolutely perfect.

Jennifer Hudson is a trooper. I remember when she performed "will you be there" at Michael Jackson's funeral....while pregnant....and just a short time after 3 of her family members had been murdered. I was bawling.

She posted something on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/beyonce and her webpage: http://www.beyonceonline.com/us/news/remembering-whitney-houston-1963-2012



He tweeted something: http://www.whosay.com/RandyJackson/content/215707?code=rDR1pph Interesting. Nothing to the mainstream press, though?


I remember that episode!! That was the sickest thing I had ever seen/heard on television. That's when you know somebody loves your ass! Literally and figuratively. She had sunk so low at that point, I thought at the time, there can be no redemption for her. She might as well have made a sex tape.

If only Whitney had gotten married to someone like Johnny Matthis or even Eddie Murphy instead of Bobby Brown.
Remember Robin--Whitney's longtime friend and assistant? Like Whitney's family, she tried but couldn't keep Whitney from her destructive choices, so I doubt any husband could.

Like Michael Jackson's death, this is a HUGE surprise but not too shocking. The human body can only take so much. She may have simply had a heart attack because of the many years of abusing her body.

I don't know if this has been posted yet, but here is the isolated vocal track (http://jakefogelnest.com/post/17460767716) from "How Will I Know." Shows how skilled and talented she and her backup singers really were, since this is well before autotune. Impressive to say the least.

That is just bad ass.com point blank, period!! (as Tamar Braxton would say)

Every time I try to sing anything of hers, it just reminds me that I can't sing, never could sing, and I should quit trying! :rofl:
