Never been a big fan of Charice. Those big pipes just didn’t fit such a little dimply pipsqueak and the whole package gave me a certain vertigo. But she’s grown up a lot, as you can see here:
There’s something chilling about this. Not because it’s so damn good–though that it is–but because Charice is 19 going on 20, the same age as Whitney when she signed with Clive Davis and Arista Records. When I chewed on that fact a little, the phrase “ships passing in the night” popped in my head. I didn’t remember that the phrase originated in a Longfellow poem until I looked it up, but it’s eerily appropriate:
Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing,
Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness;
So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another,
Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence.
RIP Whitney. Without your voice, there’s darkness, and then silence.
Thank you, @BasseyworldLive
