Whitney Goes Home

Today media from around the world streamed Whitney Houston’s home going service and the 4 hour service . The service was just everything. I was a celebration sending Whitney home to Jesus and was the highlight of my day. I won’t go over every performance , just the specific ones that touched me personally. I loved The Winans they just completely turned a sad situation into a church service. The singing , the preaching , and most importantly the message. Priorities that is a word missing from this generation and Pastor Marvin did a good job relaying that message. When  Cece sang Don’t Cry for Me and then went into Yes Jesus Loves Me I lost it. Then to top if off the family singing Tomorrow it was great for the world to see how African-Americans celebrate the life of someone instead of focusing on the bad. Kevin Costner also had a moving section on how he waited for her to do The Bodyguard so touching. Let us know what moment touched you and give us your feedback in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri

Nancy Grace hangs up on Pastor Shirley Cesar

Talentless, sensationalist, and rude and three words that aptly describe Nancy Grace in her interview with Pastor Shirley Cesar following Whitney Houston’s death.  Grace, who has focused all her energy on discussing Whitney’s past drug use and implicating it in her death, that she refuses to pay tribute to the legend. In her interview with Shirley Cesar, Grace begins to bombard Pastor Shirley Cesar with questions about Whitney’s drug use, when Pastor Cesar refuses to answer the question but yet elegantly reminds Grace that we have all sinned, Nancy Grace rudely hangs up the phone on her in mid-sentence.  Listen to the full audio below.  We at mediamyxx hate say to Nancy Grace, shame on you, just because this isn’t a lost Caucasian female doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve respect.
