Whitney Houston – More Than You Knew

Tragedy is not an expression of all that the life of Whitney Houston symbolized. Not only was she a musical sensation, but Whitney Houston was indeed a dedicated humanitarian. Hers was a key voice, among celebrities, in helping to fight apartheid in South Africa. Whitney, over the years, helped to raise over $300 million for the Unite Negro College Fund. Her Whitney Houston Foundation raised hundreds of thousands for numerous causes involving children around the world, from South Africa to Newark. Whitney’s Foundation also generated financial resources for the Children’s Defense Fund. We, at Contagious Transformation, will not remember Whitney Houston for the human weaknesses her life may have displayed. Instead, we are thankful for and celebrate her amazing strengths. Our prayers are with the Houston Family.

    I will remember her for her strengths and for her weaknesses. That makes her a REAL person who was allowed to do amazing things. That’s how I can encourage and teach others to do the same.

    Thanks for posting the wonderful acts of love with which her life was filled; it seems that most reporting I’ve seen has been focused on either her stunning voice or her tumultuous personal life. I believe this blog is the only reference I’ve seen to her humanitarian work today. What a wonderful kindness it is that you’ve chosen to give thanks for her works of mercy.
