I was shocked and saddened yesterday when I heard Whitney Houston had passed away. She was such an amazing talent and it is such a tragic loss to her family, her fans and the music industry.
Whitney’s family asked that the Clive Davis‘ annual Pre-Grammy Gala go ahead, and I joined those who were gathering to celebrate Whitney’s life, share stories and remember who she was. Tony Bennett, Diana Krall and Alicia Keys performed songs in her honor. It was a bitter-sweet night. A sad one, but also one of celebration. We will always love you, Whitney.
I’m looking forward to seeing Jennifer Hudson‘s tribute at tonight’s show.
