The CEO of the Recording Academy Neil Portnow released this statement on the passing of Whitney Houston;
"Six-time Grammy winner Whitney Houston was one of the world's greatest pop singers of all time who leaves behind a robust musical soundtrack spanning the past three decades,"
"Her powerful voice graced many memorable and award-winning songs."
"A light has been dimmed in our music community today, and we extend our deepest condolences to her family, friends, fans and all who have been touched by her beautiful voice."
Clive Davis's Annual Pre-Grammy party was rumored to have been cancelled but it has not. Whitney was rumored to be opening the party for her mentor. Clive Davis attended the party and had a moment of silence for Whitney.
