She will never be forgotten as one of the greatest voices to ever grace the earth”. — said Mariah and she even posted the photo of both of them singing together”
Also The Recording Academy made the following statement re: 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”. said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy®.
About Whitney Houston:
Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012) was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. Houston was the most awarded female act of all time, according to Guinness World Records. Her list of awards includes 2 Emmy Awards, 6 Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, 22 American Music Awards, among a total of 415 career awards as of 2010. Houston was also one of the world’s best-selling music artists, having sold over 170 million albums, singles and videos worldwide.
Inspired by several prominent soul singers in her family, including mother Cissy Houston and cousins Dionne Warwick and the late Dee Dee Warwick, as well as her godmother, Aretha Franklin, Houston began singing with New Jersey church’s junior gospel choir at age 11. After she began performing alongside her mother in night clubs in the New York City area, she was discovered by Arista Records label head Clive Davis. Houston released seven studio albums and three movie soundtrack albums, all of which have diamond, multi-platinum, platinum, or gold certification.
Houston was the only artist to chart seven consecutive No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hits (“Saving All My Love for You”, “How Will I Know”, “Greatest Love of All”, “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)”, “Didn’t We Almost Have It All”, “So Emotional”, and “Where Do Broken Hearts Go”). She was the second artist behind Elton John and the only female artist to have two number-one Top Billboard 200 Album awards (formerly “Top Pop Album”) on the Billboardmagazine year-end charts. Houston’s 1985 debut album, Whitney Houston, became the best-selling debut album by a female act at the time of its release. The album was also namedRolling Stone‘s best album of 1986, and was ranked at number 254 on Rolling Stone‘s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Her second studio album, Whitney (1987), became the first album by a female artist to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Houston’s crossover appeal on the popular music charts as well as her prominence on MTV, starting with her video for “How Will I Know“, influenced several African-American female artists to follow in her footsteps.
Houston’s first acting role was as the star of the feature film The Bodyguard (1992). The movie’s original soundtrack won the 1994 Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Its lead single, “I Will Always Love You“, became the best-selling single by a female artist in music history. With this album, Houston became the first act (solo or group, male or female) to sell more than a million copies of an album within a single week period. The album also makes her the only female act in the top 10 list of the best-selling albums of all time, at number four. Houston continued to star in movies and contribute to their adjoining soundtracks, including the films Waiting to Exhale(1995) and The Preacher’s Wife (1996). The Preacher’s Wife soundtrack would go on to become the best-selling gospel album in history. Three years after the release of her fourth studio album, My Love Is Your Love (1998), she renewed her recording contract with Arista Records. She released her fifth studio album, Just Whitney, in 2002, and the Christmas-themed One Wish: The Holiday Album in 2003. Amid widespread media coverage of personal and professional turmoil, Houston ended her 14-year marriage to singer Bobby Brown in 2006. In 2009, Houston released her seventh studio album, I Look to You.
Editor’s Note: We are so sad, shock and can not believe it. We ask GOD why her? why Whitney Houston? We will continue to bring you more coverage as news develops and for now we want to offer our sympathy to her family and Rest In Peace. Please leave your comments in here in honor and tribute to Whitney Houston. Thank you.

On Wednesday, September 14, 2011 at 8:00 am The Latin Recording Academy announced in a press conference at the Nominees for the 12th Annual Latin Grammys Awards that Miguel Paredes has been named the official artist of the 12th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards. Paredes’ artwork will be proudly used as the official image for the world’s premier Latin music event and will grace the cover of the 12th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards invitation, show tickets, poster, program book, and other important applications.
“In keeping with the progressive nature of our organization and the ever-evolving climate of Latin music, it is with great pleasure that we introduce Paredes’ contemporary piece to the roster of incredible artists who have created indelible images on behalf of the Latin GRAMMYs,” said Gabriel Abaroa Jr., President/CEO of The Latin Recording Academy. “The combination of Paredes’ trend-forward techniques and pop art style creates a visually stunning use of colors interwoven with a complexity of graphic imagery that culminates in a creative array centered against Latin music’s most prestigious award.”

LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts furthered his art education with a mentorship with pop artist and assistant to Andy Warhol, Ronnie Cutrone.
