The late great Michael Jackson has eerily sung these lines—“Gone too soon…” for the people who passed away too early. Not only were the lyrics applied to the King of Pop’s sudden demise, but also to one of his closest friends in the music industry—Whitney Houston. The world was devastated with the unexpected death of the talented singer and superstar.
According to reports, Houston was found lifeless in her room on the fourth floor of Beverley Hilton Hotel. The singer was 48 years old. Whitney died on the night of the Grammy Awards, the big occasion in the music world that she graced with her amazing talent. The unexpected tragic news led many Hollywood stars to share their feelings about Houston.
Mariah Carey, Gloria Estefan, Dolly Parton, Aretha Franklin, Rihanna, Beyonce, Quincy Jones and many other famous celebrities paid tribute and reminisced their precious moments spent with the deceased star.
Whitney has become a legend because of her numerous awards and several albums that catapulted her on top of the music charts all around the world. She was the “golden girl” of the 1980s-1990s and was considered as one of the world’s best-selling artists. She was also successful in the silver screen but her life was tarnished with a rocky marriage to Bobby Brown and drug abuse that led to the damages in her voice.
Houston was buried on February 18 and is survived by her daughter Bobbi Christina. Though the hit songs of Whitney may not be as many as the available options for home alarm systems, she has successfully etched her name in the music industry and will forever be remembered as one of the best musical legends.
