Singer, actress, and producer Whitney Houston has died at the age of forty-eight.
The details surrounding the cause and location of her death are still unknown, says publicist Kristen Foster, but sources close to TMZ say the songstress was found unresponsive in a hotel room on the fourth floor at the Beverly Hilton hotel and a police crime lab vehicle was spotted outside.
The Queen of Pop is the most awarded female act of all time, having amassed a total of 415 awards over her career, including two Emmy Awards, six GRAMMY Awards, thirty Billboard Music Awards, and twenty-two American Music Awards.
Known as “The Voice” by many, the singer has been troubled by drug use and a turbulent relationship with fellow singer Bobby Brown over the past decade, tarnishing the “good girl” image she built during the 1980s and most of the ’90s.
Larry Tinsley will pay tribute to Whitney during Sunday Morning Gospel and there will be a special tribute to Whitney Houston with V-103’s Frank Ski, Wanda Smith, Ryan Cameron and WAOK’s Lorraine Jacques White Sunday from Noon til 3 pm. on News and Talk 1380 WAOK.
We will report more details as the story unfolds.
