The late great Whitney Houston’s memory has been etched into the memories of everyone visiting the Los Angeles Grammy museum. Her musical and acting accomplishments have been laid out in all their regal glory for the world to see and appreciate. Her death may have been shrouded in confusion and uncertainty, but if one thing was certain it was that Whitney Houston was the greatest female artist of all time. The world lost one of its most talented voices the day she died.
Whitney Houston Tribute
Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister and manager, was on hand at the opening of the Whitney Houston exhibit to answer questions and pay tribute to a legend. The six-time Grammy winner led an extremely full life that, at times, were unforgettable, but the family have come together to show the world that there was more to Whitney Houston than what was always printed in the tabloids. Photos and film footage show Whitney in some of her finest hours; singing and writing music. Her stage costumes are on display and some of her scrapbooks that show her career path are also set out for people to see. The displays are set-out across mezzanine floors and a gallery that is lit in such a way that her garments and letters are bathed in warm ambience that reflects her thousand watt smile.
The ‘Whitney’ exhibit will run until February 2013 and will also show pictures of her from childhood, song lyrics to some of her best hits and dresses that she wore to red carpet events such as the Grammy’s and Music Awards. Her Grammy’s are polished and on display next to her albums. A letter from her mentor, Clive Davis, has come out of the drawers in the office partitioning at the Arista Records building and put on display. His pride of Whitney Houston was evident. This exhibit serves to keep that pride and her legend alive.
