    •   1     THE  WHEEL  SPEAKS  ON  2013  –  Celebrate  Life…..Happy  Birthday  Whitney   Years  ago  I  could  remember  this  little  petite  girl  taking  the  stage  at  the  Paradise   Garage  with  her  sneakers  and  matching  head  and  wrist  bands  and  singing  like  only   few  had  ever  done  on  that  stage.  She  won  the  hearts  of  many  who’d  probably  until   that  night  hadn’t  even  heard  of  her  being  it  was  very  very  early  on  in  what  became   an  illustrious  career.  In  2009,  the  Guinness  World  Records  cited  her  as  the  most   awarded  female  act  of  all  time.  Houston  was  one  of  the  world's  best-­‐selling  music   artists,  having  sold  over  200  million  records  worldwide.  And  who  ever  knew  that   this  young  lady  making  all  of  us  dance  would  ever  make  a  record  called  "I  Will   Always  Love  You",  that  would  eventually  become  the  best-­‐selling  single  by  a  female   artist  in  music  history?     But  in  1963  a  child  was  born  given  the  name  Whitney  Houston  in  what  was  then  a   middle-­‐income  neighborhood  in  Newark,  New  Jersey,  the  second  child  of  Army   serviceman  and  entertainment  executive  John  Russell  Houston,  Jr.  and  gospel  singer   the  great  Cissy  Houston.  She  had  two  older  brothers,  Gary  Garland,  who  was  also  a   singer,  and  Michael  Houston.  Her  mothers  cousins  Dionne  Warwick  and  Dee  Dee   Warwick,  godmother  Darlene  Love  and  honorary  aunt  the  legendary  Aretha   Franklin  were  all  notable  figures  in  the  gospel,  rhythm  and  blues,  pop,  and  soul   genres.  One  would  assume  perfect  guardians  but  we  live  in  a  world  that’s  not  perfect   at  all  and  we  should  never  for  one  second  under  estimate  not  any  respected  person   in  our  direct  lives.    
    •   2   In  particularly  those  who  might  just  even  if  we  don’t  see  it  at  that  particular  time   know  better  than  us,  because  they’ve  probably  been  down  the  same  roads.     I  don’t  want  to  get  into  anything  negative  about  Whitney’s  life  at  all  because   truthfully  I  honestly  do  believe  it  ran  the  course  that  it  did  because  of  Gods  will.  No   matter  who  you  are  fortune  or  fame  and  the  limelight  all  takes  a  back  seat  when  it   comes  down  to  Gods  will.  And  take  into  consideration  her  last  physical  work  for  us   to  have  in  regards  to  her  acting  is  that  of  a  concern  mother  of  three  young  women  in   the  movie  Sparkle  a  role  in  which  she  for  one  second  didn’t  even  seem  as  if  she  was   acting.  It  was  almost  like  she  was  reliving  in  the  movie  what  mother  Sissy  had  been   living  for  years  worrying  about  her  own  precious  baby  almost  like  a  real  live  rerun.     On  February  11th  2012  she  was  gone  but  two  days  earlier  in  her  last  public   appearance  she  sang  Jesus,  Loves  Me  how  ironic  a  song  for  her  to  sing  and  her  last   messages  to  millions  of  her  adoring  fans.  The  lyrics  (seen  below)  are  quite  simple   and  although  many  will  attempt  to  ignore  them  in  there  everyday  lives  we’ve  all   been  anointed  to  simply  listen  with  not  only  our  ears  but  with  our  hearts.     Jesus  loves  me!  This  I  know,  For  the  Bible  tells  me  so;  Little  ones  to  Him  belong;  They   are  weak,  but  He  is  strong.     God  eventually  does  provide  rest  and  comfort  for  the  weary  but  we  all  should  be   very  comfortable  with  our  responsibility  to  be  supportive  of  those  even  in  the  times   that  many  will  turn  there  backs  on  them.     I  remember  for  so  many  years  so  many  people  tease  and  publicly  ridiculed  Whitney   but  the  funny  thing  about  it  is  for  me  every  single  time  I  saw  her  no  matter  where,   whether  it  was  a  Grammy  Award  show  or  movie  I  saw  or  once  being  lucky  enough   to  even  go  into  a  studio  with  the  legendary  David  Cole  to  see  her.  She  simply  to  me   always  look  like  that  little  girl  I  saw  on  the  stage  of  the  Paradise  Garage  decades   before  almost  dancing  on  that  stage  with  that  cute  little  sweat  suit  and  matching   wrist  and  head  band  set.     We’ll  all  go  through  trials  and  tribulations  in  our  lifetimes  and  may  possibly  have   supportive  people  there  to  catch  us  if  we  fall.  But  today  I  am  asking  that  everyone  in   remembrance  of  Whitney’s  life  and  anyone  special  you  may  have  lost  be  supportive   of  those  who  may  be  weak,  and  might  not  be  as  strong  as  you  may  have  even   remembered  them  to  be  in  your  past.  Always  celebrate  those  who  are  dear  to  your   heart  and  never  have  any  regrets  tomorrow  about  what  you  may  have  probably   been  able  to  do  to  be  supportive  today.     Celebrate  Life….Happy  Birthday  Whitney  Houston     Respectfully,   THE  WHEEL  SPEAKS  ON  2013     (The  Way  Humanity  Hudson  Expects  Everyone  to  Live)
