News has broke over night of the passing of a genuinely talented artist, Whitney Houston, at the age of 48. Preparing to make an appearance at Hollywood’s most anticipated events, the Grammys, the singer and actress passed away in her Beverly Hills hotel with the police pronouncing her deceased at 3:55pm PST. Having made such a huge impact in the 80’s and 90’s it was known she had battled alcohol and drug addiction in recent years, there is no news there is a connection but much can be said that she will be a hugely missed personality. Thoughts go out to Houston’s family and friends.
