Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012), a famous American recording artist, actress, producer, and model, was born into a musical family and began singing in a choir at her church as a child. At the age of 15 she already was a professional singer. Whitney has been named by Guinness World Records as the most-awarded female act of all time. Her awards include two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, and 22 American Music Awards. She was also one of the world's best-selling music artists. Houston is the only artist to chart seven  No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hits in a row.

 
When Houston's debut album Whitney Houston was released, it  became the best-selling debut album by a female act. Houston played her first role in the feature film The Bodyguard (1992). The film's original soundtrack won the 1994 Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Its lead single "I Will Always Love You", became the best-selling single by a female artist in music history.
 
On February 11, 2012, Houston was found dead in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, in Beverly Hills, California, the day before the 2012 Grammy Awards. The news of her sudden death shocked her fans around the world. The host of the 54-th Grammy Awards opened the show with a tribute to Whitney Houston and a prayer in her honour.
