Whitney Houston

Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012) was an American recording artist, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, the Guinness World Records cited her as the most awarded female act of all time. Houston was one of the world's best-selling music artists, having sold over 170 million albums, singles and videos worldwide. She released six studio albums, one holiday album and three movie soundtrack albums, all of which have diamond, multi-platinum, platinum or gold certification. Houston's crossover appeal on the popular music charts, as well as her prominence on MTV, starting with her video for "How Will I Know", influenced several African American female artists to follow in her footsteps. more »

We all want to make a place in this world 
We all want our voices to be heard 
 Every one wants a chance to be someone 
We all have dreams we need to dream 
 Sweeter than any star you can reach 
'cause when you reach and find, you've found someone 
You'll hold this world's most priceless thing 
The greatest gift this life can bring 
Is when you look back and know 
You were loved 

You were loved by someone 
 Touched by someone 
Held by someone 
 Meant something to someone 
 Loved somebody 
 Touched somebody's heart 
 Along the way 
You can look back and say (mm) 
You were loved (yes you were) 

You can have diamonds in your hands 
Have all the riches in the land 
But, without love, 
You don't really have a thing, no no 
When somebody cares that you're alive 
When somebody trusts you with their life 
That's when you'll know (huh) 
That you have all you need 
You'll hold this world's most priceless gift 
The finest treasure that there is 
You can look back and know 
You were loved 


So many roads that you can take 
 Whatever way you go 
Don't take that road alone 
It's better you should know 


So remember to tell that special one (yeah, mm) 
You were loved 
You were loved 
You were loved 
You were loved 
Hey hey hey hey hey
