Currently Channeling: Whitney Houston

Happy Birthday to the brightest star, Whitney Houston, may she continue to rest in peace. Today I nominate her for my Currently Channeling style segment. Every now and then I like to highlight some of my favorite style icons that continue to flow into today’s fashion. Music and fashion have always been intertwined, each one compliments each other. I love how fashion can be in everything and anything. It’s simply what you perceive it to be. You march to the beat of your own drum and Whitney was exactly the epitome of that concept.

Whitney was an amazing and talented individual who always had a fashionista vibe to her. From back in the day, I always remember her for her big curls and 80’s flashback brights. The original, creator, and innovator. She had her own look and that is one of the many reasons why I fell in love .. from “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” to “Heartbreak Hotel” she captured every one’s attention with her outstanding vocals and heartfelt messages. Continuing to vibe out to her today and everyday..

Rest in Power Whitney

Such a tragic loss to lose one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard in my lifetime. She has paved such a strong path in the music industry and has literally made herself one of the most untouchable vocalists in the game. Let’s remember the good times and how blessed we are to have all witnessed such a powerful and beautiful voice and person. Rest in Power Whitney Houston.

Honoring her with one of my favorite songs, ” I wanna dance with somebody”

Rest in Peace Etta James

 

One of my favorite icons, Etta James your music has influenced so many people including myself. It will live on forever and ever through our souls and memories. Rest in Power.

 

 

“A lot of people think the blues is depressing,” she told The Los Angeles Times in 1992, “but that’s not the blues I’m singing. When I’m singing blues, I’m singing life. People that can’t stand to listen to the blues, they’ve got to be phonies.”

Constant Surprises

Lately, this song has been on repeat for me. I’ve only heard a couple songs by Little Dragon, but slowly and surely this Swedish band is capturing my heart. This is one of my faves that I’ve listened too, titled “Constant Surprises.” I love the ease and fluid sound of her voice on this track but even more are the lyrics. Simply put, they make me smile and feel good. A light and airy feel, listen and let go let flow ..

Constant surprises
Coming my way
Some call it coincidence
But I like to call it fate
