Last night February 11, 1012, the tragic news that Whitney Houston, the very talented singer died tragically at age 48.
Whitney was a singer, an actress, a film producer.
As of this time, no cause has been identified of her death and nothing seemed obvious. Rumors have abounded about substance abuse, as she has been in recovery, but nothing is known at this time.
Normally I would not include such a performer in this blog, as though she is very talented, I am not certain about how well she fits into the Gifted world.
In common parlance, someone can be said to be gifted if they have talents, but it is not what this blog is about. This blog is about giftedness related to high intelligence.
