I was moved today to post this wonderful tribute by friend to GFM Jayanti not only for the musical beauty that is contained herein but for the spirit in which one artist pays homage to the voice of a generation. What an appropriate song and sentiment, for Whitney Houston truly was “One Moment In Time” and I (like many others) are so incredibly privileged to have experienced that moment.
