She was one of the few that knew how to sing the "Star Spangled Banner" at an event.

It's a shame. We're losing a lot of people to what I'm sure is drug overdoses.

I am not sure American really know what she did for the world when she sang at the super bowl in 2001. After 9/11 the world was holding it's breath. She only sang for 30 million people but the whole world herd it and it brought tears to eyes everywhere and for that three minutes it was the worlds song.

It really is a shame. I feel bad for her 19 year old daughter. They said she had been drinking heavily the night of, and they found a bunch of prescription pills in her hotel room as well. It's scary what a combination of things can do to a person....

When we work with someone with a problem we keep an eye on them for signs of difficulty, governments, big companys and labour organization all have programs. That`s because we know they may need help from time to time. It`s about time someone came down on the support group around these entertainment people. Jackson`s doctor was a start, but it isn`t enough.
