Chris Cornell

As the lead singer for Soundgarden and Audioslave, as well as releasing an album with a group (Temple of the Dog) that would later become Pearl Jam, Chris Cornell has always had a voice that was very distinct.  He’s also recorded songs with other bands as well as having his own solo career.  I was able to see him perform with Soundgarden at Lollapalooza in September 1992, on the soccer field of the University of New Orleans.

The following are examples of, not only his voice, but his ability to understand a great song is always worth singing.









I was never a Whitney Houston person…that’s not to say that I did not appreciate how talented she was.  I just never found myself inclined to purchase a Whitney Houston CD.  Of course, if I was perusing someone else’s CD collection and they had one of her CDs with a particular song that I liked, I wouldn’t hesitate to throw it in the mix as I sat in front of their stereo,  listening to different CDs, playing DJ.

It’s actually really sad that often it isn’t until someone is gone that I find myself thinking about how talented they were in their particular field.  In Whitney Houston’s case, she had a true gift of a voice.  If you stop and think about it, it’s really something amazing…that someone is able to touch millions of people all around the world, with their voice.






Rest In Peace.
