Whitney Houston Struggles For a Comeback in the UK

Whitney Houston is not having an easy time of it.

She opened her tour last night in Birmingham, England after a brief hospitalization in Paris derailed her first dates. This is after a disastrous bunch of dates in Australia a few weeks ago.

The British reviewers were not kind. Even though Whitney tried with all her might to resurrect herself, the voice simply is not there. It’s almost heartbreaking to hear her just not be able to find even the voice she had two years ago at Clive Davis‘s Grammy party. Clearly, her instrument is injured.

There are a number of examples on YouTube. Here’s one, a short clip of “Saving All My Love for You”: http://tinyurl.com/y2la98s

What is going on? It’s hard to say. Houston denies drugs have been involved, and we can only hope she’s telling the truth. Whatever is going on, this is not the Whitney even of more recent days. And it can only be frustrating as hell for her. She knows that somewhere  in there still lies what used to be the greatest voice of all.

    Mr Roger Friedman,
    What was the point of this ridiculus post, ive heard the clip u attached from youtube.com and whitneys voice is not bad at all here. GET OVER IT, WHITNEY WILL NOT BE THE WHITNEY IN VOICE
    FROM 1980’s or MID 90’s POINT IN FACT…
    Except her for what she can give to us now with her voice & quite bashing her all the time like the rest of the NEGATIVE MEDIA reporters do….She still sound better then some of the female singers trying to sing today in music…i wont say any names..

    It’s a wrap. She can hang it up. At least the media didn’t get the chance to dog MJ the way they are dogging Whitney. Though, This Is It showed MJ was at the top of his game. Whitney needs to sit down.
