Saturday Pot Luck: Kevin Costner should deliver everyone’s eulogy

Today was Whitney Houston’s funeral, it was broadcast live to million of people, all of them eager to share in the mourning of an idol. There was quite a stellar lineup of speakers and performers, from the Rev. Al Sharpton to Alicia Keys, but the person who stood out the most for me was Kevin Costner. His speech, though a little random at the beginning, gave us an insight into the Whitney that very few people were privileged enough to see. From her beginnings in a church choir through to an embarrassing mishap during a screen test for her most famous film, The Bodyguard. I was laughing and bawling in equal measure, particularly at the end: check it out below.

Saturday Potluck (Bonus): RIP Whitney

I wasn’t going to write another blogpost tonight but, wow, then Whitney Houston died. I’ve been listening to her music for my entire life, trying and completely failing to sing along with her. She had so many rough patches but it seemed like she had gotten through it all, just like with Amy Winehouse, it seems like you can never escape your demons. The performance above is so beautiful and poignant, I’ve been blubbing along to it on repeat. I can’t even imagine the pain that her family is experiencing, as well as her fans, may she rest in peace.
