Remembering Whitney Houston one of the most loved and best selling acts and according to Guinness World Records the most awarded female artist of all time. February 11 marks the 6th anniversary of her death. Houston was found dead in her guest room at the Beverly Hills Hilton in California a day before the 2012 Grammy Awards. The official coroner’s report showed that she had accidentally drowned in the bathtub, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors. Her biggest single on the Billboard Hot 100 was “I Will Always Love You,” from the soundtrack to her 1992 film debut, “The Bodyguard.” The track spent 14 weeks at Number 1 and at the time was the longest-running Number 1 single. That honour is now shared by Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey with “One Sweet Day” in 1995-1996 and equaled in 2017 by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber with “Despacito” in 2017 at 16 weeks. Whitney scored 11 #1 hits in her career including I will Always Love You, I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me), Greatest Love Of All, All The Man I Need, I’m Your Baby Tonight, So Emotional, How Will I Love You, Didn’t We Almost Have It All, Saving All My Love For You, Exhale (Shoop Shoop) and Where Do Broken Hearts Go.
