Today the entertainment world and music fans around the globe are mourning Whitney Houston — a phenomenal talent with a voice like no other. The pop superstar was found dead in her Beverly Hilton hotel room yesterday afternoon. She was 48. Details of her death are still sketchy. The Los Angeles Times has extensive coverage on its website. Also, photos, videos, and more on the official Whitney Houston website.
Houston was once a powerhouse in the music industry as well as a succesful movie producer and actress, then personal struggles with addiction and erratic behavior derailed her career. Recently, there were indicators the singer was attempting to clean up her act and was on the road to a comeback. Houston was in the Southland this week taking part in the events, leading up to today’s 54th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
