The sudden death of Whitney Houston over the weekend has caused a lot of people to look back on her career, and what a career it was!

I got really angry over the weekend when I saw some people on facebook saying "it's not a shocker", and calling her a "doper". What?  Well, I was shocked!  Yes, we all know that she had a few stints in rehab, but a lot of people, including myself, genuinely just want the best for people.  Maybe her death affected me more because I remember when she first hit the music scene or because I see my morality when someone famous or not, dies at a young age. Either way, you can't deny that we lost her way too soon.

Whitney Houston is the only music star to achieve seven consecutive Billboard #1 hits, and her arguably most popular song, ‘I Will Always Love You,’ is the highest-selling single to ever be recorded from a female artist. As a whole, she’s sold more than 170 million albums all over the world and is the first to sell one million albums in a single week.

Here are some of her hits that helped make one of the most successful music careers of all time.

‘I Will Always Love You’

‘Saving All My Love For You’

‘So Emotional’

‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’

‘It’s Not Right But It’s Okay’

‘Greatest Love of All’

‘How Will I Know’

‘I Have Nothing’

‘I’m Your Baby Tonight’

‘How Will I Know’

And we can’t forget how she set the standard for singing the ‘Star Spangled Banner.’
