Fans and musicians pay tribute to Houston

5 years ago36 views

Fans of US singer Whitney Houston have gathered across the country to remember the fallen star, as some of the world's top entertainers paid tribute to her legacy at the annual Grammy music awards in Los Angeles, California.

From the Newark, New Jersey church where a young Houston once sang gospel to the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California, where she died early on Saturday, fans assembled to remember her through her biggest hits.

The music community also paid tribute to the record-breaking artist over the weekend.

At her long-time mentor Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy gala - the event Houston was preparing for at the time of her death - singer Alicia Keys referred to both artists being mentored by Davis before singing one of Houston's early hits on the eve of the awards show.

Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds, reporting from Los Angeles, said that Houston had been seen at public events in good form, and had been working on post-production for the film Sparkle in recent weeks, a film which she was producing.
