September 16, 2014  |  

On the verge of her comeback, Whitney Houston suddenly died at the age of 48 on February 11, 2012. Although fans and family members are still in mourning of a great loss, Houston’s legacy lives on thanks to her mentor Clive Davis. Davis, who discovered Houston in the 1980s, will release her first posthumous album this November. During an interview on the Today show, Davis announced what music fans can expect from “Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances.” He shared: “She was without question the greatest vocalist in the world, it was a marvel that she was as powerful and as incredible as she was. But bittersweet that she died too young.”
