I still don’t believe this … so, bare with me while I cope.
Whitney Houston died this afternoon … a rep for the singer told the Associated Press.
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.
Houston holds an Honorary Doctorate in Humanities from Grambling State University in Louisiana.
Houston had one child, Bobbi Kristina, with husband Bobby Brown. Houston and Brown were married from 1992-2007.
My favorite Whitney songs “You Give Good Love” and “All the Man I Need” are on repeat right now.

She was scheduled to star in a remake of ‘Sparkle’ with Jordin Sparks this August. Here’s a clip of Whitney Houston on set happily speaking about her upcoming role:
