OBIT-WHITNEY HOUSTON

LOS ANGELES -- Whitney Houston, who ruled 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, died Saturday. She was 48. By Music Writer Nekesa Mumbi Moody.

WHITNEY HOUSTON-APPRECIATION

Whitney Houston's downfall was so long and sad that, in an impatient public's mind, it overshadowed her many accomplishments. Those achievements can be checked off easily in numbers -- Grammy Awards, records sold, the string of seven consecutive No. 1 singles. Yet if there's any solace to her passing, it is that people will revisit recordings, videos and films to rediscover the majesty of her work. By Entertainment Writer David Bauder.

-- OBIT-WHITNEY HOUSTON-QUOTES -- Reaction to Houston's death.

-- WHITNEY HOUSTON-DAVIS GALA -- Houston's friend and mentor Clive Davis holds his annual Grammy concert, which Houston herself had planned to attend.
