Whitney Houston - "Who Could Imagine A King"
She was legendary, iconic, and the voice of an entire pop generation. She paved the way for countless female singers to rise in her wake, and she proved to the world that a black woman could hold the highest spot in popular music and reign.
This song is often overlooked, and it comes from her less than stellar move "The Preacher's Wife", but it tells a beautiful message and in the rerecorded version for her holiday album she really shines. This song is about believing in yourself, and in those you love, and allowing yourself to become more than anyone ever thought possible, and helping those you love to do the same.
So today, with gentle smile and a fire sparking to life, I choose Whitney Houston's "Who Could Imagine A King" as my, break the molds, sparkle like on your light can, let others be guided by your light, song for a, leave a legacy, let them remember your heart, the beauty remains, Thursday.
I'm giving you both the album and the movie versions!
