I woke up this morning to the sudden demise of Whitney Houston, the 48 years old legendary diva who belt out one of the most popular songs of all time : I Will Always Love You.
Beverly Hills police Lt. Mark Rosen told KABC-TV that Houston died in her room on the fourth floor of the Beverly Hilton. Her body remained in the hotel and Beverly Hills detectives were investigating.
Houston had been at rehearsals for the show Thursday, coaching singers Brandy and Monica, according to a person who was at the event but was not authorized to speak publicly about it. The person said Houston looked disheveled, was sweating profusely and liquor and cigarettes could be smelled on her breath.
Fans left messages on her FB wall and Twitter (for her to read on her iPad up above?):
Rest in peace Whitney Houston, your songs were perfect for everyone’s ear, your voice thunder on stage, but it is now past, know that while you’re away from us will be remembered as a human figure with angelic voice …. we miss you very queen of pop music! We love you our Whitney ♥♥♥♥~ !!!
R.I.P. Whitney Houston. Like us all you’ve had ur demons on Earth, now you will rest with the angels in Heaven.
Thoughts and prayers to family. Her music is timeless and she will always be remembered. Rest in Peace Whitney Houston.
R.I.P Whitney Houston…..you will never be forgotten, your legacy will continue to live on.
I believe thousands of die-hard fans must be crying their heart out and humming her songs outside of her hotel.
Some even ridiculously suggest to make tomorrow a public holiday for everyone to grieve.
Whitney Houston… you’ll be missed dearly, not only me but the whole world.
