It’s been one year since the world lost one of the greatest voices we’ll ever hear. On February 11, 2012, Whitney Houston passed away at the age of 48. Her body was found in a hotel bathtub at the Beverly Hilton. Authorities said her death was complicated by cocaine use and heart disease.
One year ago, celebs were getting ready for Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party when the news broke. Over the weekend, stars including Jill Scott, Jennifer Hudson, Pat and Gary Houston, Estelle and John Legend attended this years party. Performers included Gladys Knight, Miguel and Usher.
Clive told the audience that his world is still “so shattered by her passing” and that Houston’s death still feels “unreal.” Then he played a video of Whitney singing “All The Man That I Need,” a rare performance, and he called her ”greatest, greatest singer of our lifetime.”
Check out some of the footage below:
Whitney’s “Sparkle” co-star, Jordin Sparks, along with other musicians, also gave a moving tribute at Tru Hollywood, the last place Whitney had performed before her death.
Whitney, we miss you!!!
