    R.I.P Whitney

    Who knew. I'm sure her death has probably affected you more than most of us, but I still remember the chills that went down my spine and the goosebumps I had the night she sang the national anthem before the superbowl. If I remember correctly, it was the first superbowl game after 9/11. I never heard a better rendition of our anthem before that, and I haven't heard one since.

    • They showed a replay of her doing the national anthem on CNN yesterday and she just nailed that song, it was incredible.

    • I remember that after the Super Bowl appearance, the next day it was Clive who was all over the fact that the sales department needed to get out a single to stores and our radio promotion department needed to try to get it some "spins".

      In 1995 I sent Clive a memo that our artist Aretha Franklin never had a "live" album (with Arista and Atlantic records songs). She still doesn't. Whitney does not have one either. Both of these artists need to have LIVE albums available in their repetoire/catalog for posterity sake.

      PS...I'm in the process of trying to start my own label. The catch is that it will only feature ONE song as the entire release, and will be availble for download only.....It's much cheaper in todays record business than making a full album.
