Tributes Paid To Whitney Houston

Tributes Paid To Whitney Houston, Musical stars paid emotional tributes to legendary US singer and actress Whitney Houston as they gathered for the annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, less than 24 hours after her shock death, aged 48.
Singer Jennifer Hudson was expected to perform as part of a “respectful” tribute at the Grammys, while the veteran producer who discovered her said Houston would want the show to go on.
“Simply put, Whitney would have wanted the music to go on,” said Clive Davis, veteran producer who said he was “personally devastated” by Houston’s death, hours before his traditional pre-Grammys party in Beverly Hills.
Houston, whose hits included “I will Always Love You” but whose career went downhill as she battled with drugs, was found dead in her room at the Beverly Hilton, shortly before Saturday night’s party hosted by Davis.
Musicians, many already in Los Angeles ahead of the Grammys, lined up to pay tribute to Houston, 48, who sold over 170 million records and also starred in movies before descending into a very public battle with substance abuse.
“She was one of the greatest singers I ever heard,” said veteran crooner Tony Bennett, on the red carpet at the hotel in Beverly Hills, where Houston’s body was found in her fourth floor room on Saturday.
