Whitney Houston was a true icon who was one of the first woman of color to sucessfully transition to a mainstream artist. Singer, actress, producer, and model Houston came on the scene in the early 1980’s with her debut album Whitney Houston in 1985. Going on to eventually win over 400 awards including 6 Grammy’s she is the most awarded female artist of all time. At this time it is unknown what her cause of death was but it is clear that we have lost an extremely talented artist who will be truly missed.
