Singer, actress and most awarded female act of all time Whitney Houston died Saturday (February 11) at the age of 48, publicist Kristen Foster revealed to the Associated Press. Houston was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. PST at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and her cause of death is under investigation.
This disturbing news comes just hours before mentor Clive Davis’s annual pre-Grammy party, in which Houston was much involved. Just yesterday, the star was mentioned as a possible judge on X Factor. Earlier this week, Whitney took the stage at Tru Hollywood for Kelly Price’s “Kelly Price & Friends Unplugged: For the Love of R&B GRAMMY Party”.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Whitney’s family and friends, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated with new information as it becomes available.
