RIP Whitney Houston: Her acting and greatest hits

Whitney Houston had one of the most iconic voices and her soulful music inspired music listeners around the world. Some of her hit songs include ‘I will Always Love you’ and ‘I have Nothing’ which featured in 1992 hit film starring Kevin Costner.

For those of who you are unfamiliar with Whitney’s onscreen outing alongside Kevin Costner, The Bodyguard is a charming romantic drama/ The film centers around a former secret service agent that must protect a pop singer (Houston) who’s journey into fame comes with a certain lifestyles and risks. Directed by Mick Jackson and Lawrence Kasdan, I have to say it is one of my favourite films. Whitney plays an incredible performance, and it’s genuine. Her pairing with Costner was brilliant, and because of her music, this film had such a heart to it. It’s really one of the only films that successfully incorporates the real life of a singer (music career) and the fiction of a Hollywood movie.

Whitney Houston faced challenges in her career, love, and defeat, but she triumphed time and time again. Today we remember her, and only wish the best for the family.
