As the world bids farewell to Whitney Houston, we remember her tremendous talent -- a glorious, golden voice that only comes once in a lifetime.
Perhaps Oprah Winfrey put it best by saying, "Whitney was the Voice. We got to hear part of God every time she sang."
Mick Jackson, who directed the pop star in "The Bodyguard," recalled, "Her voice shot you right through the heart." The 1992 movie brought her most memorable song -- "I Will Always Love You" -- a cover of a former Dolly Parton hit.
