Beyonce Reacts to Whitney Houston's Death: 'Ultimate Legend, Ultimate Woman'
"The loss of Whitney Houston is painful. I remember meeting Whitney for the first time when I was 15. She was the ultimate legend. The ultimate woman. Not only was she confident, poised, stunningly beautiful and intelligent, but she was sincere and kind. She took the time to make everyone feel like they were very important to her. I, like every singer, always wanted to be just like her. Her voice was perfect. Strong but soothing. Soulful and classic. Her vibrato, her cadence, her control. So many of my life's memories are attached to a Whitney Houston song. She is our queen and she opened doors and provided a blueprint for all of us. God bless her."Beyonce got to perform with Whitney in 2003 when they sang with at the VH1 Diva Duets alongside Mary J. Blige and Jewel.
