Family, friends, fans and music heavyweights mourned the sudden death of music icon Whitney Houston Saturday, but perhaps none more so than legendary producer and her lifelong mentor Clive Davis.

Davis and Houston had a relationship that surpassed that of the typical singer and music executive. Davis discovered Houston as a teen, nurtured her and shaped her into a superstar and one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. He maintained a strong hand in her career and life, attempting to keep his music prodigy with the megawatt voice and incredible range on track during her notorious bouts with drugs and alcohol, and tumultuous marriage to Bobby Brown, and later maneuvered her many comebacks.

Houston was found dead only hours before she was set to attend Davis’ annual pre-Grammy’s party at the Beverly Hilton hotel, the same event where she was introduced to the music world in 1983, nearly three decades ago.
