RIP Whitney Houston

On Saturday Afternoon, international pop-star Whitney Houston was found dead at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. No cause of death has been determined, however, in recent years she had struggled with drug abuse.
Houston was 48.

The Newark, New Jersey native began her career in the 80's with songs like "How Will I Know," "I Want to Dance With Somebody." In the early 90's, Houston made her acting debut in the film, The Bodyguard and the films main single, "I Will Always Love You," which was written by Dolly Parton and performed by Houston became one of the biggest singles of all time. In her career she sold over 200 million albums and singles worldwide. She won 30 Billboard Awards, 22 American Music Awards and two Emmy Awards

She will be missed. Our thoughts go out to her family, friends and former husband, Bobby Brown, who learned of the news before performing Mississippi last night.
