Whitney Houston was seen over the weekend at the 17th Annual Mercedes-Benz Carousel of Hope Ball at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with her musical mentor Clive Davis. She looks wonderful. I am glad to see things are looking up for one of my favorite singers. I am anxious to see her next concert tour.

Just take those old records off the shelf
I'll sit and listen to 'em by myself
Today's music ain't got the same soul
I like that old time rock'n'roll
Don't try to take me to a disco
You'll never even get me out on the floor
In ten minutes I'll be late for the door
I like that old time rock'n'roll
