Well I never was a big fan of Whitney's, but felt compelled to make a video of one of her tunes after hearing of her passing. I learned the music quickly and cheated by having the lyrics in front of me. Did it in one take, it wasn't going to get any better...

I don't do the song any justice, but just wanted to put something up as a tribute to her. RIP Whitney!

Nice rendition.

Q: Hey, what's the first thing Whitney is going to do in heaven?

A: Open for Michael Jackson by singing a duet with Amy Winehouse.

(too soon?)

Nice rendition.

Q: Hey, what's the first thing Whitney is going to do in heaven?

A: Open for Michael Jackson by singing a duet with Amy Winehouse. "Goin' back down to rehab, I said, no no no."

(too soon?)

Yes. People who ask 'too soon' really don't care.

ANYWAY, I hope other uke players follow this up with more tribute videos.

Thanks guys! Seems like there's lots of Whitney uke covers on youtube that have posted in the last couple of days.

Really nicely done, Eric..... it's funny how much more I like 80's tunes when you do them.....

Erivel. I did the same thing. I loved this song as a kid so when I heard the news I pulled up the chords and got to work. Yours sounds great!
