Singer Whitney Houston died Saturday in Beverly Hills, according to law enforcement sources.

Authorities are trying to determine a cause of death. [Updated at 5:46 p.m.: She was found in the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where emergency medical personnel were called sometime Saturday, said the sources, who asked to remain anonymous because the investigation is ongoing.]

Houston, 48, was in the Los Angeles area for a musical tribute to music executive Clive Davis and had performed and spoken to reporters earlier in the week.

I don’t know. She is not as big as Michael Jackson but yea..

We will have to know how she died. How much drugs “BOBBEAY” had her on. Then they will top it all off with a mini series of her wasted life.

This is one of the best performances of the National Anthem ever.

With that said, who did not see this coming?
At one time I would have fist fought Bobby in the streets for Whitney...

May she rest in peace

It’s a shame to lose someone that talented.

Go to YouTube. Listen to her 1991 Superbowl redition of the Star Bangled Banner.

Or Rev. Sharpton.

Too bad. But not a shock. When she was clean, she was amazing. And a beautiful gal.

This is terrible news. We still don't know why she died, although people are speculating that drugs may be involved. It wouldn't be the first time an entertainer succombed to the horrible allure of drugs.

"So, goodbye. Please, don't cry.

Amen. Though I think she was happy when she was singing -- joyousness came through her voice. She was a wonderful singer.

May God keep her and bless her family with comfort and strength.
