Whitney Houston On Music Charts
February 15, 2012 by staff
Whitney Houston On Music Charts, Whitney Houston’s career is getting a post-mortem boost, but it isn’t likely to be as big as the one that enriched the King of Pop’s estate after his death.
Like the late Michael Jackson, Houston was in the midst of an attempted career revival. She was found dead at age 48 on Saturday in her Los Angeles hotel room on the eve of the Grammys, a stage she once ruled.
It could be weeks before the coroner’s office completes toxicology tests that could establish the cause of death.
In an outpouring of grief – and a desire to remember her soaring voice and upbeat personality – Houston’s fans have propelled her decades-old recordings to the top of sales charts on iTunes and Amazon.com. Twitter recorded more than 2.5 million Tweets about her within two hours of her death.
Not unlike Jackson’s posthumous star turn in the movie “This Is It,” Houston will star in a film that is set for release this fall. In addition, dozens of the six-time Grammy-winner’s unreleased recordings may someday be released to a public grieving her loss.
“It really is a finite universe of celebrities that are able to transcend their own death to create commercial opportunities,” said David Reeder, vice president at GreenLight, a subsidiary of Corbis Images that helps license the images and work of late icons such as Albert Einstein and Johnny Cash. “People want to remember her back in 1986 at her peak, when nobody was doing it better than she was.”
