We all wish we could sing like the late Whitney Houston. Most of us are keyed into reality enough to know that will never happen and that time we sang “The Greatest Love of All” at our 3rd grade talent show would be the last time we’d ever be brave enough to sing a Whitney Song in public. We understand that we have to settle for a life time of singing “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” in the shower, where the acoustics are most forgiving. But there are others of us who are still gutsy enough to attempt a Whitney song in public.
One such brave soul was on a recent American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to New York. In fact, she sang so many Whitney songs that the plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City when she refused to stop singing.”The woman was being disruptive and was removed from the plane for interfering with the flight crew. There was a federal air marshal on the aircraft, who subdued the woman and put her in cuffs and removed her from the plane,” said a Kansas City International Airport spokesman.
In this bootleg passenger footage, you can see that the woman’s swan song was a spirited rendition of “I Will Always Love You,” complete with some really creative vibrato. That’s a tough one to sing, even with the best singing voice. But I respect her for trying. Allegedly, she blamed the Whitney singing episode on her diabetes. No word on what her excuse was for being sharp on those high notes. [Gawker]
