Whitney Houston Gives Disastrous Performance in Concert, Report

According to EbonyJet.com, R&B singer Whitney Houston’s performance in Tabago over the weekend was an absolute catastrophe. The following are excerpts from the review at EbonyJet.com: Houston, 44, banned photographers and the media from getting within 200 yards of her on Sunday night at the Plymouth Jazz Festival stage. Nervous, no doubt about the quality of her voice, the ex-Mrs. Brown kept telling the Tobago audience how happy she was to be in Trinidad. Unfortunately, she had good reason to be nervous. After such a long time away from the stage, Houston’s flat, horse and listeless voice was a big disappointment to those who knew the power she commanded at the height of her career. All that said, Houston looked great, decked out in a form-fitting white gown. And given the fact that this is her first real concert date since her December 2006 appearance in Malaysia, you gotta give the sister credit for at least showing up on time for her 30-minute, seven-song set. Houston started out with “It’s Not Right, But It’s OK,” a song that few folks in the audience appeared to know, and followed it up with an old favorite “Step by Step.” As peppy as that tune is, Houston failed to get much of a rise out of the audience, many of whom had come extra early to make sure they got a good spot on the lawn.

On “Saving All My Love For You,” another song that should have brought the capacity crowd to their feet, Houston’s voice cracked. “I don’t think the voice is still there,” said one patron on his way out. He probably felt the same way about her delivery on “I’ll Always Love You” since she missed all the notes that once made that ballad one of her signature tunes. The folks who had paid $120 (general admission) were already a little unhappy but after that song they stopped applauding. Continue reading the review here
