Iconic singer Whitney Houston died Saturday at the age of 48, The Associated Press reports.

Kristen Foster, Houston’s publicist confirmed the entertainer had died, but the cause of death was unknown.

In addition to her talent, Houston was also known for her tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown and for her admission to using cocaine, marijuana and pills.

CNN reports that Houston died at a hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., on the eve of the 54th annual Grammy Awards despite resuscitation efforts.

I was so shocked to hear of Whitney Houstons' death.I really loved all her music,'How will I know'' was one of my favorites.I was devastated when I seen her many times on the news so, so skinny from taking drugs. I was so sad to see her going through so much in her life and now to wonder what her daughter Bobbi is having to deal with just makes it all so much worse.It is one tradgedy after another.I wasn't to pleased when she married Bobby Brown because after that she never fully recovered from the drugs they were never good for one and other.
