Houston's first studio album in eight years, My Love Is Your Love (1998), sold millions and spawned several hit singles, including "Heartbreak Hotel", "It's Not Right but It's Okay" and "My Love Is Your Love". Following the success, she renewed her contract with Arista for $100 million, one of the biggest recording deals of all time.[5] However, her personal problems began to overshadow her career. Her 2002 studio album, Just Whitney, received mixed reviews. Her drug use and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown received widespread media coverage. After a six-year break from recording, Houston returned to the top of the Billboard 200 chart with her final studio album, I Look to You (2009). On February 11, 2012, Houston accidentally drowned in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, with heart disease and cocaine use as contributing factors. News of her death coincided with the 2012 Grammy Awards (which took place the day following her death), and was covered internationally.


After spending much of the early and mid-1990s working on motion pictures and their soundtrack albums, Houston's first studio album in eight years, the critically acclaimed My Love Is Your Love, was released in November 1998. Though originally slated to be a greatest hits album with a handful of new songs, recording sessions were so fruitful that a new full-length studio album was released. Recorded and mixed in only six weeks, it featured production from Rodney Jerkins, Wyclef Jean and Missy Elliott. The album debuted at number thirteen, its peak position, on the Billboard 200 chart.[189] It had a funkier and edgier sound than past releases and saw Houston handling urban dance, hip hop, mid-tempo R&B, reggae, torch songs and ballads all with great dexterity.[190]


From late 1998 to early 2000, the album spawned several hit singles: "When You Believe" (US No. 15, UK No. 4), a duet with Mariah Carey for 1998's The Prince of Egypt soundtrack, which also became an international hit as it peaked in the Top 10 in several countries and won an Academy Award for Best Original Song;[191] "Heartbreak Hotel" (US No. 2, UK No. 25) featured Faith Evans and Kelly Price, received a 1999 MTV VMA nomination for Best R&B Video,[192] and number one on the US R&B chart for seven weeks; "It's Not Right but It's Okay" (US No. 4, UK No. 3) won Houston her sixth Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance;[193] "My Love Is Your Love" (US No. 4, UK No. 2) with 3 million copies sold worldwide;[194] and "I Learned from the Best" (US No. 27, UK No. 19).[195][196] These singles became international hits as well and all the singles, except "When You Believe", became number one hits on the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play chart. The album sold four million copies in America, making it certified 4 platinum and a total of eleven million copies worldwide.[53]


After the release of her first solo album, Rolling Stone named her the "Reigning Queen of Rock and Roll".[4] Nicks was named one of the 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time[5] and one of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time[6] by Rolling Stone. Her Fleetwood Mac songs "Landslide", "Rhiannon", and "Dreams", with the last being the band's only number one hit in the US, together with her solo hit "Edge of Seventeen", have all been included in Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.[7] She is the first woman to have been inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: first as a member of Fleetwood Mac in 1998 and then as a solo artist in 2019.[8]


The band's live CD The Dance was released to commercial and critical acclaim. The Dance earned the group several Grammy nominations, including a nomination for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for their live performance of "Silver Springs".[92][43][93] In 1998, Nicks joined the group for its induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[94] That same year, Fleetwood Mac was awarded the Outstanding Contribution at the BRIT Awards.[95]


The box set Enchanted was released to acclaim on April 28, 1998, with liner notes from Nicks, as well as exclusive rare photographs, and pages from her journals. Nicks supported the box set with a successful U.S. tour. In 1998, Nicks contributed to the Practical Magic soundtrack and performed in Don Henley's benefit concert for the Walden Woods Project.[98][99]


for close to seventeen months because of the Berkshire County prosecutor's pervasive control over scheduling motion hearings and trials for the criminal session of the Superior Court. The motion judge rejected the prosecutor's explanation of the delay as either rooted in court congestion or excused by the assignment of only one judge to the session. [Note 3] He also expressed consternation with the prosecutor for delaying what appeared to be to him an open and shut case. As matter of fact, he found that the "Commonwealth . . . must bear full responsibility for any failure to bring this matter to trial in accordance with Rule 36." [Note 4]


[Note 1] At the same time, and for the same reasons, the motion judge allowed motions to dismiss the related indictments against Floyd A. Amidon, Jr., and David Cook. (It was the Commonwealth's intention to try the cases together.) The appeals in those cases are controlled in major respects by our decision in this case, and we also affirm the orders of dismissal in those cases. We leave the particulars, however, to separate, unpublished orders, post 1115 (1998).


This is a post-conviction application for a writ of habeas corpus, filed pursuant toArticle 11.07 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure. (1) Applicant was convicted ofburglary of a building and sentenced to seventeen years imprisonment. Applicant hasfiled a pro se subsequent writ of habeas corpus. He claims a constitutional doublejeopardy violation because the trial court initially ruled that his sentence would be servedconcurrently with another case from Gregg County, but the judgment, signed 52 dayslater, ordered this sentence to be served consecutively. Applicant's claim is bothcognizable on a subsequent writ and meritorious. Therefore we grant relief.


A jury convicted Mr. Madding on July 11, 1994, of burglary of a building. Laterthat day, the jury assessed his punishment at seventeen years' imprisonment. Also thatsame day, the trial judge, in accordance with article 42.03, (2) pronounced applicant'ssentence while applicant was in the courtroom. The prosecutor asked whether the judge was going to cumulate the sentence with some other (unspecified) sentence. On therecord, the trial judge said: "I will let it run concurrent[ly]." No written judgment wassigned until September 8, 1994, 52 days later. That written judgment states that the 17-year sentence would run consecutively to a Gregg County conviction. 041b061a72
