    Thanks dear Paul.

    Whitney Houston died yesterday… I was shocked to know this from news..((
    Maybe you have her vinyls? It will be the great share for her memory. RIP Whitney

    This is of course off-topic, but let’s all take a moment to remember Whitney Houston, a beautiful woman with an amazingly talent. We, her fans, are deeply saddened by her tragic death. R.I.P. Whitney.

    Thanks! btw- Your title to this post is ‘color of love’ however the song is actually ‘cover of love’. Just thought you’d like to know. 🙂
