RIP Whitney Houston

Today, we say goodbye to one of the most iconic female performers of all time. It was announced this evening that Whitney Houston has died at the age of 48. She was found in the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Although she went through a roller coaster of personal matters over the past several years including her rocky marriage to Bobby Brown and drug addiction, it should not overshadow the fact that over the last twenty years of her music career, she earned two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards and 22 American Music Awards. In addition, she still remains one of the top female-selling artists of all time, selling over 55 million albums in just the US.

Celebrities have show their love and condolences online today as we approach the 54th annual Grammy Awards tomorrow evening. We remember that she has been an inspiration to many, specifically to women and women of color in the music world. She will be truly missed, especially her talent.

As she sang in The Bodyguard, “we will always love you.”
