“No one knows what she was running from.”

The world has never stopped grieving the loss of legendary singer Whitney Houston, who died in 2012 at the age of 48.

“It’s natural for people to want to place blame. I placed a lot of blame on a lot of people too, when it came to Whitney,” Brandy wrote (via People). “We loved her so much and needed something or someone to attach blame to because it was so hard to accept that she was gone.”

“We don’t really have the right to speak on anything that she had to go through in her life. No one knows what she was running from. No one knows what she was trying to overcome.”

“No one knows the costs that came with being Whitney Houston. That level of fame, that level of expectation, that level of pressure.”

“Whitney’s voice could bring you closer to God,” she also wrote. “She has inspired generations of little girls all over the world to sing from their hearts and guts. That was her magic, and that’s her legacy. And we’ll never see another Whitney Houston.”

Brandy and Whitney Houston collaborated together on the 1997 TV version of Cinderella, and it’s clear that Whitney influences Brandy to this day. Here’s Brandy performing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at this year’s NFC Championship football game last weekend, channeling Whitney’s own iconic outfit from when the late legend sang at the 1991 Super Bowl.
