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.

    Whitney Houston was the music that lived through heartache and it was what got me through the heartache. She was talent, she was blessed, she was the one who had me believe that in that “one moment in time” my dreams were a heartbeat away, and I made sure he knew that “it was not right but it’s ok, I’d rather b alone than unhappy” and the lucky guy that came along knew ” that I’d have nothing if I don’t have u.” So shocked we had to lose someone like her, but I’m sure she will never be forgotten.
