Do any of you remember Houston? If not then this should jog your memories….
Several years ago Houston made headlines after he suffered a major mental break down while in the UK on a promotional tour, and gouched out his eye.
I often wondered what became of him after this sad/unfortunate incident… but it now looks as if I need not wonder again….
According to mediatakeout.com Houston is now homeless, living on the streets of Los Angeles.
A myspace bulletin was apparently sent to a reader, detailing the former star’s current situation.
“Hello Saints, My name is Houstina Summers – sister of Capitol recording artist Houston Summers.
I’m screaming out for prayer on behalf of my Brother who is too wounded to pray for himself. My Brother, who is 24yrs old, has had an album released in 2005 called, ‘Its Already Written’. Just a couple of months after that he suffered a nervous break down and gouged out his left eye.
He prayed for healing for himself and I watched as God took heed and began to heal my Brother. However, in late 2007 the storm grew worse.
At the time my Mother and fifteen year old Sister was living with my Brother. My mother was in between jobs and Houston’s royalty checks grew slim. Eventually they were evicted.
So, my Step dad took them in only to be rushed to the hospital a couple of days later. He was diagnosed with terminal cancer and they two were evicted.
It was too much for my Brother and now he is sleeping on the streets of Los Angeles. He has turned to drinking and smoking as his comfort. I believe that God has a plan for him and will bring all of us out into victory.
Yesterday my Mom and I scanned the inner streets of Los Angeles to find a broken Houston leaping down the rainy streets. We found him cold, hungry and dirty. He didn’t want to come with us because he is afraid we are going to admit to a mental to hospital.
He ran away from us and has been missing for two day. Please Pray, PLEASE!! Houston is a very special person and we can’t give up on him.
