Whitney Houston was 48. She reigned as pop music's queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown.
She is the only artist to chart seven consecutive No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hits with "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 also starred in the films The Bodyguard, Waiting to Exhale, The Preacher's Wife and Cinderella."
Then, there was this tune, which was absolutely everywhere back in 1992.
