Whitney Houston Celebrates Gospel

Whitney Houston made a remarkable comeback in singing at BET’s Yearly Celebration of Gospel event. Audience were in awe as she stepped into the stage and sang the R. Kelly written and produced anthem “I Look to You” with the phenomenal Kim Burrel.

It was a miracle and a touching moment as the music diva is showing signs that she is firmly fighting her drug addiction problem.

Her powerful voice made her the most awarded female artist of all time with 2 Emmy Awards, 6 Grammy Awards, 16 Billboard Music Awards, 22 American Music Awards, and listed as one of The 100 Greatest Singers of All Time by the Rolling Stone magazine. Nobody can’t forget her song “I will always Love you” that made her the best-selling single artist in music history and made her an icon in all generation.

Houston began her singing career at being a junior gospel choir member at her New Jersey church. She had a quite impressive training ground and an excellent mentors like her mother Cissy Houston and a family friend Aretha Franklin.

This African-American woman is not just an R&B, Pop and gospel singer but a renowned actress and a stunning fashion model as well. “The Bodyguard” movie is her first starring role that had been a box-office movie and garnered awards and commendations from different award-giving bodies.

As a fashion model, Whitney only gained a few pounds after her announced drug addiction but still in shape whenever she was dressed in church suits or an evening dress to attend an event. It was amazing to know that though her family and relatives are really ballooning in figure whenever they reach their 50’s, 60’s and 70’s ages, maybe she won’t be wearing plus size dresses even if she reached that age.

You can see her blooming look and startling performance during the Celebration Of Gospel which will be aired on BET on Sunday, January 30 at 8 p.m.

Oprah is 2010 Kennedy Center Honors Honoree

It wasn’t a surprise that Oprah was one among the five recipients of Kennedy Center Honors for 2010. For more than 25 years in the industry as a doyenne of daytime television, has established one of the most innovative careers in the entertainment world, and have created appositive impact on the American Culture. With this, she deserved or rather surpassed the qualifications for the Kennedy Center Honors.

Being a Kennedy Center Honors awardee, this honor will be added into her numerous recognition for years as an actress, producer, philanthropist, and the richest African American of the 20th century, and was the world’s only black billionaire.

But being the most influential woman in the world, during the event the media mogul was dressed in a plus size dress with plunging black top and A-line skirt only. Her attire had been the talk of the blogosphere, because the event calls for a black and tie dress code, and everybody was expecting that Oprah will be dressed in a designer plus size suit.
Although, Oprah’s style is still there, (the plunging neckline) spectators find that dress inappropriate for that significant event.

Well, that was indeed pretty simple compared to her appearances for the different awards and events that happened this season. See below:

Either of these Oprah look is ideal for the Kennedy Center Honors. She looked amazingly gorgeous either in dark or bright color dresses. Although she missed donning a floor sweeping gown to get her Kennedy Center Honors award, she proved that plunging neckline is really is her style.
