A Legend Lost – Whitney Houston

Vania Brown ’12 | Editor

Whitney Houston is pronounced dead at the age of 48. On the eve of the Grammys, Houston’s publicist, Kristen Foster, released news of her death to reporters in Los Angeles this evening. The cause of death has not been revealed, though Houston was found dead by her body guard in her hotel room; there were no signs of criminal intent. She had been in rehab numerous times throughout her life, but had made a comeback in 2009 with album, I Look To You.

The world renowned R&B, pop singer, prominent in the 80s and 90s, was made famous for her songs, “Saving All My Love,” “I Have Nothing,” “Children of the Future,” and “I Will Always Love You.” Houston also had a firm acting career with her roles in the “The Preacher’s Wife,” “Waiting to Exhale,” and “The Body Guard.”

Houston leaves behind 18 year old Bobbi Kristina, her daughter with singer and ex-husband, Bobby Brown.

Houston was currently in production with her role in the remake of the film, Sparkle, said to debut this year.
