Whitney Houston 1963-2012

Breaking news, and unfortunately details are sketchy, but multiple award-winning singer and actress Whitney Houston has died from unknown causes on the eve of this year’s Grammy Awards.

Whitney Houston was a superstar of the 1980s, scoring seven straight number one hits in a row, and was said to have one of the greatest voices in the music industry. She was the daughter of gospel singer Cissy Houston, cousin to Dionne Warwick, and Aretha Franklin’s goddaughter. She found success on the big screen in The Bodyguard and Waiting to Exhale.

Her more recent years have been scarred by her tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown and a lingering drug addiction problem. Whatever the means of her demise and sad life of late, we have truly lost a superstar of our time.
