    It doesn't look like it, but I trust this isn't a hoax.

    Incalculable waste of beauty and talent. Only 48 years old.

    R.I.P., Whitney.

    Tragic,seemed she'd 'lost her way' long ago though. A natural successor to Aretha and Gladys Knight--or so it seemed-- once upon a time.

    This is on the BBC website, it seems scarcely credible. So talented, I think those records from the 80s were classics of their time- such an incredible voice. I always enjoyed playing Saving All My Love as a ballad. Very sad.

    Just to imagine how many of us felt so good hearing her songs. We should be thankful. Yes, her gift was not wasted. Sometimes having too much is difficult to manage. We have seen it before. Lets hope she is better now, singing as she always did.

    There are many great musicians, but very few that were great right from the get go. Whitney could nail a song on her first take. With that type of talent, it was not wasted as we all heard it from the first time she sang. The sorrow comes from the idea that we'll never get to hear her do that again, but maybe that's the cost of it. Rest in peace.

    Truly a sad event. Just spent the last hour listening to her first album. What a voice what a sound; may she rest in peace. I hope her daughter and family members hang tight and take care.

    Extremely sad and totally unexpected news to wake up to today. She had such a great voice and enriched our lives with it. The biggest loss however is the human one for her family. For her mom Cissy, cousin Dionne Warwick, and daughter, this has to be one of the worst experiences of their lives. I feel for them and hope they can find the strength to make it through.

    A wonderfully gifted musician who had a hard time making her world work. Such a tragic later life.

    Whitney Houston is one of the greatest singers of our time. Her vocal quality and singing ability was truly remarkable. Another icon passes on, and at still a young age. I feel sad.
