    Remembering Whitney Houston

    An Artist that Inspires


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     SalvadorLA shares this photo of a doll he made in 2010 in honor of Whitney Houston. He says: 'I was listening and dancing to Whitney's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" when it hit me there were not any Barbie dolls in her likeness out there. I therefore decided to make my own and honor her image. I enjoy making my own one of a kind celebrity dolls and it was only logical to add such an icon to my collection.'
    - elchueco, CNN iReport producer

    Whitney Houston was a very inspiring artist. I wasn't even born in the 80's and "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" is one of my all time very favorite songs.

    Her style, her work ethic, and her talent are something that I will always remember about her.

    Here's a doll that I designed in honor of her image and style essence. This Barbie doll says "I wanna dance with somebody" and Whitney, we will forever listen to your songs and appreciate the magic you brought into our lives.
