Watched the β€œWhitney” documentary this past week. Two weeks ago I was staying at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills down the hall from the room where Houston died. In one of the more painful sequences of the documentary, Houston is shown struggling through a dissonant rendition of her signature hit "I Will Always Love You" during what was intended to be a comeback tour, prompting fans to demand refunds at some performances.

This edit is of a photo of Dorothy Dandridge taken at the popular Cleveland nightclub, Lindsay's Sky Bar, by photographer Frank Kuchirchuk. The photo is part of the Frank Kuchirchuk Collection of Jazz Photography at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Cleveland, Ohio. Kuchirchuk donated his entire collection of jazz images of nearly 200 photographs, most of which are negatives that have never been seen by the public, and feature such artists as Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Art Tatum, Stan Getz, Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins, and Anita O'Day performing at the height of their careers.
