This past week left the music industry reeling from the news of the untimely passing of music legend Whitney Houston as she and the music world prepared for the Recording Academy’s 54th GRAMMY Awards.
Houston carved her own path in music and film, and did so with class and flair; the loss of such extraordinary talent will continue to be felt in Hollywood and beyond. Houston led the way for up-and-coming talent and her legacy will continue to live on in the hearts of so many young stars. With a touching tribute and rendition of “I Will Always Love You” by Jennifer Hudson, the entire nation gathered to celebrate the life and music of the one and only Whitney Houston.
While Adele swept the show with six GRAMMYs, pop singer and ALMA Award nominee Bruno Mars wowed the audience with not only a fantastic performance of “Runaway” but a total of six nominations, followed by ALMA Award winner and The Voice presenter Christina Aguilera, with two nods.
Congrats to all nominees and awardees, and our thoughts go out to the family and friends of the one and only Whitney Houston.
