After seven studio albums, fifty singles and more music awards than any female in history, Whitney Houston is gone. The forty-eighty year old singer passed away earlier this afternoon at the Beverly Hills Hotel, but beyond that, details are still very fuzzy.
With a history of addiction battles and no major known health problems, some outlets are speculating drugs could have played a role, but at this juncture, it’s far too early to tell. TMZ obtained footage of the mobile crime lab pulling up to the hotel where she reportedly passed, but no one from law enforcement is making anything public.
Regardless of what her cause of death proves to be, Whitney’s loss is incredibly sad and troubling. Her voice stood among the all time giants, effortlessly moving through octaves and rising to incredible heights without losing power. No one will ever truly be able to replace her gift. Our thoughts got out to Houston’s daughter Bobbi, as well as her ex-husband Bobby Brown.
We’ll keep you updated as more information breaks, but until then, listen to Whitney crush “I Will Always Love You”…
