When you look at this footage of Whitney Houston in a recent concert all you can do is say, “Poor Whitney.” She’s really trying to meet the expectations of those who called her back to the stage, but she just cannot get those notes and get herself together all at the same time. It’s a hurtful thing to watch because this is her craft and her passion and she really is trying to do the best she can with what she has.
But the truth is there isn’t much left and Clive Davis needs to be called into question. Is he being a friend or is he being an opportunist? She managed to sell over a million copies of her album and that made everyone involved some money. Not only that, she is in the middle of recovery and immediately going on tour? She was supposed to start her British tour last week, but had respiratory infection or trouble with her breathing. Does it really sound feasible to put her on a strenuous tour fresh out of rehab? Isn’t her respiratory issues enough evidence that she isn’t ready for this yet? It doesn’t seem that she could possibly endure such a rigorous schedule.
So Tuesday when she hit the stage for her first performance, it was evident that she was just plain tired. Check her out.
