Singer and actress Whitney Houston has died. Star of THE BODYGUARD (with Kevin Costner), THE PREACHER'S WIFE (with Denzel Washington), and WAITING TO EXHALE, her albums sold millions around the world. She also sang the National Anthem at the Super Bowl in 1991, and it was tremendously good:
Her movie career wasn't a long list, but she was in some significant box office hits. THE BODYGUARD, especially, made many millions of dollars, and has lots of fans around the world: It also spawned a very popular song, "I Will Always Love You", a cover of a Dolly Parton song from THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS:
Whitney Houston actually had finished another film at the time of her death, called SPARKLE, starring Jordin Sparks. Whitney was playing her mother. It's wrapped and scheduled for release later this year.
Our thoughts go out to her family and friends.
