Whitney Houston dies at 48

I simply have to write this since her songs belonged to my generation.

Singer Whitney Houston is dead at 48 🙁 Relatively young for such an impressive talent. A tragic loss, I must say and we condole with her family (specifically her only daughter, Bobbi Kristina Houston Brown) in this moment of grief. As of press time, the cause of her death is still unknown.

This is a short Whitney Houston biography via cnn.com :

Houston has sold more than 170 million albums, singles and videos over her career.

That includes seven straight Billboard No. 1 hits in the 1980s, including “Saving All My Love for You,” “Greatest Love of All” and “Where Do Broken Hearts Go.” Billboard claimed that her soundtrack to the movie “The Bodyguard” is one of the top 10 biggest-selling albums of all time. (This film also had a hit song “I Will Always Love You.”)

The daughter of US Army serviceman John Houston and singer Cissy Houston, Whitney was born on August 9, 1963, in Newark, New Jersey. Famed music producer Clive Davis reportedly spotted Houston 20 years later in a New York nightclub, signing her on the spot, according to her website.

In May 2011, Houston got help for her much-publicized struggle with drugs and alcohol, her representative said at the time.

She was previously married to singer Bobby Brown, with whom she had a tumultuous relationship.
