Whitney Houston was a Grammy winner, earned countless Billboard Music Awards, American Music Awards—even a couple of Emmys. But on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards, the singer and actress died at the age of 48.
Although Houston's publicist had not announced where Houston died on Feb. 11, the Beverly Hills Police Department said she was at the Beverly Hilton.
Fans flocked to the hotel following news of the singer's death.
"When we heard the news, we just wanted to come out and see if it was true, and also see them bring her body out—so we could see if it was real," Angeleno Marquit Strozier told Beverly Hills Patch.
