Happy Birthday Whitney Houston! Here Is Jade Novah's Epic Tribute To You!

Since I can remember being alive I've been a huge Whitney Houston fan. Since I can remember being alive, I've also been a singer. I learned early on that a staple rule for any venue or talent show is to never ever everrrrr sing Whitney. It's a risk.. a huge risk for any human to attempt to sing anything that "The Voice"  has sung. Her voice is perfection, and it's usually best to just let her have a song all to herself.
