Clive Davis’s Annual Pre-Grammy Award Party Becomes A Memorial To The Late Whitney Houston

As was reported earlier, it appears that Whitney Houston passed away by drowning yesterday afternoon just hours before she was scheduled to appear and reportedly perform at The Recording Academy and Clive Davis Annual Pre-Grammy Party that famously takes place annually each night before the Grammy Awards. Because the event was so beloved by Whitney, her mentor and friend Clive Davis decided that the show would go on despite her death and would, instead, be turned into an impromptu memorial for the late Whitney Houston. Clive Davis opened the show last night with remarks about Whitney‘s passing and then led the assembled audience in a respectful moment of silence … and then the party got underway.

Impromptu Pizza Party

Alas … my plans for a date night last night were foiled so it was another quiet night at the ol’ homestead for me.
