Whitney Houston dead at 48
Singer Whitney Houston has died at the age of 48, according to news reports. Her publicist has confirmed the singer's death on Saturday evening, but did not reveal the cause.
Houston, best known for her hit single "I Will Always Love You" and her appearance in The Bodyguard with Kevin Costner, was one of the most successful singers of the 1980s and 1990s, until drug addiction and a rocky marriage to fellow singer Bobby Brown overshadowed her career.
The singer is survived by her 18-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
News of Houston's death came on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards.
