Janet Steps Out for the Soul Train
March 22, 2004
Hollywood had lots of heart and soul for WHITNEY HOUSTON on Saturday night
as stars sent their best wishes to the singer, who's currently in rehab.
"My heart goes out to her as always," said R&B sensation USHER. "She is one
of the greatest vocalists that we've ever had, and I hope that her personal
struggles are taken care of and that she's fine in the end."
'Kill Bill' star VIVICA FOX said, "I offer her, another sister, 110 percent
of my support. We will be here for her with open arms when she gets out.
She's a very talented woman and we're not gonna turn our back on her. She
has problems, just like all of us do, and I'm glad that she was woman enough
to face them."
