Whitney Houston, the multi-Grammy Award winning superstar, has been found dead in her room at the exclusive Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel, in Beverly Hills, California.

Houston, 48, was due to perform at the exclusive pre-Grammy party for powerhouse media and music mogul Clive Davis, Houston’s longtime mentor, friend, and strongest supporter.

According to authorities, Los Angeles Fire Department Rescue squad had been on site at the hotel in preparation for the Grammy Eve Party hosted by Clive Davis, an annual event regularly attended by a virtual who’s who of the music and entertainment world, when the distress call went out of an unresponsive female. CPR was performed without success.

A celebrated talent, Ms. Houston’s well documented singing career produced six Grammy Awards, an astounding twenty-two American Music Awards, two Emmy Awards, and thirty Billboard Music Awards. Her career produced global sales of over 170 million records.

The singing sensation transitioned with ease to the big screen starring in several  motion picture hits including The Bodyguard opposite Kevin Costner and with it turning an obscure unknown song, I Will Always Love You written by Dolly Parton, into a signature piece and global phenomenon. She went on to star in Waiting to Exhale, opposite Angela Basset, Lela Rochen and Loretta Devine and directed by Forest Whitaker, and The Preacher’s Wife with Denzel Washington.

She graced countless magazine covers and it wasn’t until her marriage, to R & B singer Bobby Brown in 1992, which rumors began to surface of a secret drug dependency. The couple’s marriage ended in 2009. Those persistent rumors forced Ms. Houston to confess publically her struggles and enter rehabilitation.  A recent come back featuring the hit, Million Dollar Bill, wasn’t the strength of her previous eleven number ones’. The industry and the audience had changed.

Born in 1963 in Newark, New Jersey, Ms. Houston will be forever missed and forever remembered. She is survived by her daughter, Bobbi Kris, from her marriage to R & B singer, Bobby Brown, her mother, Cissy Houston, Cousins Dionne and Dee Dee Warwick and countless other relatives and friends.

At press time, Ms. Houston’s cause of death is undetermined.

This is a developing story.
