Born: August 9, 1963 in Newark, New Jersey, USA
Died: February 11, 2012 (age 48) in Beverly Hills, California, USA

On the afternoon of February 11, 2012, Houston was found dead in her hotel room at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. She was pronounced dead at 3:55pm PST.

Her funeral was held at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday, February 18, 2012. Following services, she was laid to rest beside her father at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey.

While Whitney scored a massive international hit with “The Greatest Love of All” (by Michael Masser & Linda Creed), she wasn’t the first to record it. That distinction belongs to George Benson who introduced the song on the soundtrack of the biopic The Greatest (1977).
