Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 -- February 11, 2012) ; Cause and location of her death unclear.
Houston's publicist, Kristen Foster, said Saturday that the singer had died, but the cause and the location of her death were unknown. The News of Houston's death came on the eve of music's biggest night — the Grammy Awards. It's a showcase where she once reigned, and her death was sure to case a heavy pall on Sunday's ceremony. Houston's longtime mentor Clive Davis was to hold his annual concert and dinner Saturday; it was unclear if it was going to go forward.
Here are some highlights of Whitney‘s career:
- Over 200 million albums sold worldwide
- Recipient of six Grammy Awards and twenty-six nominations
- Winner of twenty-two American Music Awards and thirty-eight nominations, more than any other female solo artist in history
- Only artist to chart seven consecutive Number One Billboard Hot 100 hits (“Saving All My Love for You”, “How Will I Know”, “Greatest Love of All”, “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)”, “Didn’t We Almost Have It All”, “So Emotional”, and “Where Do Broken Hearts Go”)
- First female artist to debut an album at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart
- Appeared in four films, including 2012′s Sparkle
- Only artist with at least one Grammy, Emmy, MTV Video Music Award, MTV Movie Award, People’s Choice Award, and Billboard Music Award to their name.
Please pray for her family, Friends and Fans during this time of grief.
