Nelson Mandela today honored the memory of Whitney Houston.
As Lawrence O'Donnell said tonight, let's remember Whitney the way she deserves to be remembered: singing to Nelson Mandela on his birthday, and singing to him at the White House.
Whitney Houston was a staunch supporter of the fight against apartheid and refused to work with any agencies who did business with pre-democratic South Africa during her modelling days.
