R.I.P. Whitney Houston age 48

Yesterday, February 11, 2012, the world lost another star. Whitney Houston, age 48, passed away from unknown causes.

Ms. Houston was scheduled to perform for the Pre-Grammy awards show; however, prior to her appearance she was found dead in her hotel room bathroom. It has been speculated that she had taken some medication prior to getting in the tub and may have drowned.

Houston started her singing career at New Hope Baptist Church in the junior choir and was developed into a soloist at the age of 11. In her mid-teens, she started singing backup for artists like Chaka Kahn and Lou Rawls. In 1984, she sang a duet with Teddy Pendergrass “Hold Me”. Clive Davis signed Houston to Arista Records and by 1985 her singing career was on its way.

In the span of 27 years, Whitney Houston became an international superstar in both the music and motion picture world. She had amassed global album sales of over 120 million copies alone, and a film box office total of over a half billion dollars. She was received many international awards and accolades for her works.
