Ms. Houston
18 July 2018 | by See all my reviews

I am one of the lucky few, who got to meet this amazing women.

I met him one cold day back in the early part of her career.

She was doing a video for her first album and I and a couple of my friends where filming for a show, if you remember, Spencer for Hire, we were filming a night club scene, whereas we were the dancers in the club. I and the other dancers were on a lunch break and we were in the cafeteria eating. All of sudden, this little thing walked in with all of these colors on and sat down to eat.

Evidentially, it was Whitney Houston here filming her video "I want to dance with somebody". You know with all of the hair and the color. Well, there were about 6 of us at the table and no one was brave enough to talk to her, with the exception of me, of course. I was always the loudest and bravest out of the group. Anyway, I went up to her table and said would she mind some company (since she was alone, eating), she said sure, and I motion to the rest of the crew to come over. She was shocked, but got over it pretty quick when she found out we were filming next door and for what show.

I tell you, that was the best lunch I ever had. We spent about an hour with her, just laughing and having the best time. Until we were called to the stage and had to say goodbye.

That young women was the same person I saw every time she walked out on stage. Beautiful, polished and humble.

I tell you what, the day she died.........I cried like I cried when I lost my mother......

The pain will always be there......But whenever I hear her voice on the radio, I smile and remember that little woman I saw that day in the cafeteria.

She was something else. And I will truly miss her.
