Grazia Daily is sad to report that Whitney Houston has died aged 48.
The legendary songstress was found dead in her hotel room in Los Angeles at around 4pm on Saturday 11th February, just hours before she was due to perform at a pre-Grammy awards event.
According to TMZ.com, members of Houston's entourage found the singer in her bath and prescription sleeping pills have been recovered from the room. Police said paramedics unsuccessfully tried to resuscitate Houston after the alarm was raised at 3.43pm.
In her final interview last November, the I Will Always Love You singer revealed she was 'older and matured' following her battle with drink and drugs. 'I've been in the industry for 30 years,' she said. 'There'll be ups and there'll be the downs. But you believe in your faith and your determination.'
Mariah Carey paid her respects to the singer on Twitter, saying 'Heartbroken and in tears over the shocking death of my friend, the incomparable Ms. Whitney Houston. She will never be forgotten as one of the greatest voices to ever grace the earth. My heartfelt condolences to Whitney's family and to all her millions of fans throughout the world.'
'I am deeply saddened by the news of Whitney Houston's very untimely passing,' Christina Aguilera said. 'We have lost yet another icon in music. Whitney's voice was so special to me. Her notes soared to places most singers dream of reaching. She will be missed.'
