Can it really be almost a year since we lost Whitney Houston? The Grammys still went on the next day after losing the music legend, but a new special entitled "The Show Will Go On: A Death In The Family" will show what changes and tributes were made due to Houston's passing.
The show will air on Saturday night Feb. 9th and will be an hour tribute to the songstress airing at 10 P.M.
They will be showing never before seen rehearsal footage from those performances and behind the scenes interviews with Grammy artists talking about Whitney.
The special also includes personal accounts of the day's occurrences and Whitney Houston's passing by Clive Davis, Dave Grohl, Jennifer Hudson, host LL COOL J, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Swift, and Joe Walsh.

DrFunkenberry was lucky enough to get some time with funk/R&B artist Malina Moye. If you like ol' skool funk, we recommend checking out Malina's new album "Diamonds and Guitars" - it's full of great guitar riffs, funky grooves and strong ballads. Listen to a couple of tracks below.
Malina grew up in a family of musicians. Mom and Dad played for the band The Techniques and she considers George Clinton, Whitney Houston and other funk legends her cousins. You can see and hear their influences in her music, from her "upside-down" guitar playing ala Jimi Hendrix, to the waa-waa riffs of Prince and funky grooves of Parliament Funkadelic.
In the interview, Malina talked to us about growing up funky, meeting legends like Prince and Michael Jackson, belting out the national anthem before thousands, her Dad's crush on Sheila E., and what she has in store for this year. You can download Malina's "Diamonds and Guitars" from Amazon or iTunes. Enjoy - Dr.FB
