BEING WHITNEY HOUSTON by : Jessie Glova
and just her songs will linger into our hearts reminding us how beautiful life is.
I have been a fan of Whitney Houston since i was like on my early years humming and learning her rendition of Greatest love of all and when my mom bought a Music mate that comes with a multiplex cassette tapes where you can sing along .... next thing i mastered after GREATEST LOVE OF ALL ..It was that song "ALL AT ONCE " and have memorized nearly all her songs by heart ... I have been a solid fan I believe she's one of my early infuences and shaped me of who i am today ...

The song that made me realized that i can sing and i was noticed was" Saving All my love for You ' i used to sing that in house parties/gatherings, during my high school days i started joining pageants .... one sunday in Mandaue Cebu i went for a screening For a local gay pageant ,.. when everyone s waiting for the result as i was wearing a neon orange two piece swimsuit ... with my tanned and funny curly wig ,.. somebody stepped in and asked who among you all can perform ???? so i did Volunteer ...raised my hand and i said yes and good thing I brought my minus one with me, so i did perform..... I sang "ALL AT ONCE" it was the late Kuya Doy Aradaza who asked me to perform and i was so happy that i have given that opportunity and called me MISS WHITNEY from that time on I was under his wing .

Third Year high School it was the tine that i have been full pledged performer and a Drag Artist ... I performed I ALWAYS LOVE which i believe its one of the most difficult song to sing it was't even a difficult song for me ... i was already feeling her soul like has influenced me and inspired me and for years it has become my song .

traveled and performed in hotels in different Cities around the globe worked in a Music industry and was tasked /hired to look after bands like from the styling and etc I was their acting Manager and their band leader from that point i get to sing male songs , i was restricted to sing female songs and have changed me definitely but it was my choice to conform and follow them since they know best
I continued traveling I landed a hotel job in London UK... after my 2 year contract i went home . It was a different feeling , a feeling of emptiness,loneliness and feeling lost .
I went to take another degree . finished Diploma in Proficiency in Professional Education in University of San Jose . that year I was again associated with my old friends the DIVAS and reunited with the Late Mommy Doy now i know its by fate I came home for soul searching and thank GOD i have found it ..... I went to perform again as DRAG .

With my life with the DIVAS as i have chosen a career I have made myself a certified make-up artist went to study in Singapore to make my career a legit. Myself , i was full of fire , passion , very driven , wild with creative imagination and big dreams , I worked hard and so determined that I can stand by myself I was inspired to be like my sisters the DIVAS , I made it , succeeded and truly and had a career and carved a name in the Industry ,but sadly things changed .... it was not that i expected and never thought will happen , friendship shuttered into pieces I was really devastated ..it was never my intention to outshine anybody nor to compete with ... It was all an honest living. My Friends turned their back at me , because of false accusations I felt I was like the baddest person in the world but I know I was not doing wrong for God is my Witness .... I was devastated ... I wasn't able to have the chance to explain nor to redeem myself, but instead , I chose to be quiet and persevered.
RESPECT , PERSEVERANCE , HARD WORK , HONEST LIVING AND BEING POSITIVE... what i was holding to ... I slowly gained back my friends and I wish and until now I pray that we can be together again I miss you sisters !!! as what MOMMY DOY wants us to be is to continue his Legacy.
He created me , and gave me a life in DRAG I will not going to stop being one .... Im keeping it because for me i know He is happy for me as I continue what he wants me to be.

6:30 pm i started with my first look , it gave me goose bumps what i was looking at the mirror resembles Whitney Houston and now i believe its easier for me because she is always a part of me and we both draw our emotions in similar fraction with regards to friends , love and work .
I did four different looks ... it was pretty amazing I did my own hair and make-up and as well the styling it was really a different fulfillment me acting and feeling like WHITNEY HOUSTON even for a day is already a DREAM COME TRUE cos there's only one queen of soulful ballads .
