–A Weekly Chronicle Series
Some lives so extraordinary end too soon.
Some lives hit stellar stardom so early.
It was a fascinating night for gaining something larger than life from a poignant story; Adele and her heart-breaking songs on her album, 21. Sadly, it has been a week of reminiscing about a person we’ve lost, remembering her voice and music; Whitney Houston found dead, a night before the Grammy awards. These things, compelled me to draw and ruminate.
Last Sunday was undeniably Adele’s moment, sweeping all six major awards at the Grammy’s. She is 23 and impeccably beautiful. So young, so talented, what more can she ask for? Elated on her budding love-life lately, I can’t wait for some love-infused, happy tracks on her next album.
Disheartening how Whitney Houston almost had it all yet left us too soon. Legendary talent, beauty, fame and money; having it all together, a tumultuous battle it must have been for her. Among other things, I will always remember the iconic music and the incredible high-belting performances she gave us. Watching her videos on Youtube today, still grips me inside. However, this is how I want to remember Whitney; having merry-eyed eyes, affable smile and blessed with an incomparable voice.
