Whitney Houston’s storied life and career will be showcased in an exhibit at The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles beginning on August 15.
“Whitney! Celebrating the Musical Legacy of Whitney Houston” will be unveiled the same week as her last feature film, “Sparkle” hits
According to the official website, “Whitney! Celebrating the Musical Legacy of Whitney Houston” will “provide an in-depth look at all aspects of Houston’s creative life. Bringing together diverse artifacts, rare photographs and footage, the exhibit features dozens of items from the private collection of the Houston family.”
“This exhibit is a token of appreciation from our family for Whitney’s fans to enjoy and embrace,” Houston’s manager Pat Houston said in a statement. “We hope they are as elated as we are to have shared in such a remarkable life.”
On showcase until February 2013, the exhibit will also include stage costumes worn by “I’ll Always Love You” singer – like her white gown from the 1994 Grammy Awards ceremony where she won album of the year for “The Bodyguard” soundtrack, albums and career scrapbooks, her Bible, ticket stubs, fan memorabilia and other Houston belongings.
“We are particularly excited to showcase her long connection to the Grammy Awards show and to celebrate the musical genius that made her one of America’s most-awarded pop and soul vocalists,” said Robert Santelli, Museum executive director.
The six-time Grammy winner Houston died the night before the Grammy Awards on February 11, 2012. She was 48.
