Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen
Yes, sad to hear about this.
Her voice was a great instrument, although I personally don't regard her as one of the greatest artists (in the artistic as opposed to the commercial meaning of the word), but she was a terrific talent for sure. With the right producer (one who didn't go for a glossy pop/r&b sound) and the right backing musicians I could have imagined her coming out with a great soul album. But it's all a matter of taste I suppose...
Anyway, RIP Whitney, we won't forget.
Couldn't agree more, however she shone in the pop arena for sure. I would have linked to have seen a live acoustic set with her to see how she compared.
After seeing clips from her Australian tour at the time, It seems a such a waste...
