He's the antidote to cookie-cutter country

Five reasons why there will never be another Whitney Houston

On the second anniversary of her death, we salute the great singer

Today is the second anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death. While there are many great pop singers, I doubt there will ever be another one as universally applauded as Whitney Houston. First and foremost, of course, is her voice. But we're also in a different time where we require our female pop singers to look like they just came from a Maxim cover shoot and be able to dance like a Rockette. Houston was beautiful, but the focus was always on her talent. The only other current pop diva who relies solely on her voice these days, and with good reason given its supremacy, is Adele. As much well-deserved success as Adele has had, it's hard to fathom that she will have the same kind of run as Houston.

Below are five reasons that Houston was so great. While other singers have some of these elements, none possess all five to the degree that Houston did.


*She could sing: That sounds obvious, but you don’t have to be able to sing to be a pop superstar anymore. I won’t name names, but we all can reel off a list of artists who can’t carry a tune in a bucket. When Houston was healthy, her mezzo-soprano was unparalleled in its power and clarity. She never seemed to be showing off like so many other divas because she didn’t need to.
