Whitney Houston Dead At 48
No your eyes are not deceiving you. Whitney Houston has died at the age of 48 according to confirmed sources.
Both her publicist and TMZ has announced the passing of R&B icon Whitney Houston. The singer died this afternoon according to the Associated Press. Whitney who battled drugs for several years with ex husband Bobby Brown was often criticized for her erratic behavior.
Houston won two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, 22 American Music Awards during her record-breaking career. Her album “Whitney” was the first female album to ever debut at #1 on the Billboard Charts. She has sold 200 albums world-wide.
It’s been only two months and the African-American community has already lost three legends. Etta James was the first after battling a year-long illness. Soul Train creator Don Cornelius took his life at the beginning of the month after a troubled divorce and illness.
Houston leaves behind one child Bobbi Kristina. I can only imagine the pain her friends and family must be feeling right now.
