I can honestly tell you I was so happy to see this in my inbox this morning. I was hoping Janet would publicly speak up and she has.
Being a fan of both singers, I know they counted each other as friends back in the day. I vividly remember an interview in which Janet said Whitney was one of her biggest supporters, always sitting in the front row screaming for her the loudest.
Likewise, Whitney often spoke of her love for the entire Jackson family.
Long before Whitney became WHITNEY, she worked on several amazing songs with Jermaine Jackson, who at the urging of Clive Davis invited her to sing lead on several of his singles, including “Take Good Care of My Heart,” “If You Say My Eyes Are Beautiful” and “Nobody Loves Me Like You Do.”
Expect many more celebrities to share their love of Whitney as well.
If you didn’t see BET’s 3 hour tribute to Whitney last night you missed a doozy. Everyone from Jill Scott to Pastor Shirley Ceaser gave testimony of Whitney’s greatness.
It was truly a tear jerker.
