One of our very favorites to play on these afternoon rides was Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody." We loved the upbeat rhythms and Whitney's beautiful voice as she belted out the lyrics to a song that made us all want to dance.
"The truest expression of a people
is in its dances and its music.
Bodies never lie."

Needless to say, we were deeply saddened to hear the tragic news about Whitney Houston's passing this weekend. She had such a special star quality about her - her bright smile, fashion-forward style, carefree attitude, and, of course, her truly spectacular voice.
Her music really was a gift to the world, and her loss will be deeply felt by many. Our hearts go out to Whitney's grieving family and friends during this difficult time, and we hope the ones she has left behind will take comfort in knowing how much joy her music has given to so many people.
To celebrate the life of a beloved and talented woman, we'd like to share our favorite Whitney Houston song with you. This is the Whitney we'll always remember in our hearts.
Whitney Houston, we'll always love YOU. May you rest in peace.
