It is with great sadness that we lost another superstar with such a fascinating voice and with some of the biggest potential in the music and the entertainment industry. Houston like Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse left us too soon. Let them not die in vain and let’s remember a lesson or two on drug abuse.

3. Collapse before Death:
National Enquirer covered a story 2 days before Houston’s death. She was seen in public, out of place and being tipsy while trying to get into her car. When in the car, she collapsed. Many feared she had a relapse. In fact one person even asked if they should call the police. She had a good performance, but was too dishevelled with blood on her leg right after.
