Whitney Houston - His Eye Is On The Sparrow (with lyrics)

Whitney's powerful vocals are on full display, as she belts out a soul stirring rendition of the gospel standard "His Eye is On The Sparrow". Despite showing considerable restraint, she had the same fiery gospel in her golden voice that earned her the title "The Voice". Her ability to interpret a lyric, embody a song and transform it into a soul-stirring masterpiece remains intact. Whitney once recalled singing in the choir, "while serving my apprenticeship in that choir, I learned everything I ever needed to know about singing: how to sing when the tempo changes in the middle of a song, how to sing four-part without even thinking about it twice and how to sing a cappella, which is the greatest school of all--your voice is the instrument, your feet are the drum and your hands are the tambourine". God gave her that smooth, powerful angelic voice, and while she may have lost some of that range and purity, she perfected it with depth, spirit and wisdom. This poignant performance serves as a reminder of the late great Whitney Houston's magnificent gift.
