Remembering Whitney Houston,
Thousands of Whitney Houston fans poured online to express their condolences at Whitney Houston's online memorial website.
The multimillion-selling singer who emerged in the 1980s as one of
her generation’s greatest R & B voices, only to deteriorate through
years of cocaine use and an abusive marriage, died on Saturday in
Beverly Hills, Calif. She was 48.
Ms. Houston was found in her room at 3:55 p.m., and paramedics spent
close to 20 minutes trying to revive her, the authorities said. There
was no immediate word on the cause of her death, but the authorities
said there were no signs of foul play.
