Whitney Houston’s death is shocking. In addition to being one of the greatest voices of our time, she also was one of the first models of color I saw on the cover Seventeen magazine as young girl. Here’s a look a some of her early fashion shots.

Back before crack was whack. A fresh faced girl taking the teen modeling world by storm!

I'm not one for reportage, but here are excerpts from the always classy NY Post. I will continue to work the story via my TV as I patiently await tonights Grammys which will get a ratings boost because of this for sure.

"Houston — who sold 200 million albums and singles worldwide and rose to fame in the middle of the 1980s with such hits as “Saving All My Love For You” and “How Will I Know” — was found dead in her fourth-floor room in the Beverly Hilton Hotel, sources told The Post.

live Davis’ celebrity-packed party last night — one day before the Grammy Awards.
Sources told The Post that Davis, Houston’s mentor who launched her career more than two decades ago, “is devastated.”
The party went ahead in the same hotel — even as Houston’s body was still upstairs in her room as it had not been removed by the coroner.
Davis began with a moment of silence to honor Houston and told the crowd, “Whitney would have wanted the music to go on and her family asked that we carry on,” People magazine reported.
Producers for tonight’s Grammys were scrambling to set up a tribute. One R&B record exec told The Post that the whole show was being rewritten.
Jennifer Hudson and Chaka Khan will perform a tribute, E! Online reported."
