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.

    Sad news often comes when lease exspected. News often tell us what we want to hear rather what we need to hear. Ms Houston life is questionable because of her sudden demise. Her actions with Bobby and after thier split remains on an ugly road. While membories has its place; I would hope she would live for her child and her own sakes. Many of our stars or people left this earlh in a manner that cause all of us to think would we want to be that person. Michael Jackson, Luther, Whitney, others who left this world as quickly as they came. Now, we need to think about her 18 year old daughter Bobbie and what life is going to be like for her….hopefully all of sisters can reach her at this sadden time to easy her heart even if it is going to be hard but its time someone be there besides her. Whitney fight is over now and her songs will continue on in her absent. I extend my deepest condolences to the family.
