Fans Remember Whitney Houston on Sixth Anniversary of Her Death on Twitter: See the Tweets
On this day, six years ago, music lost one of its most incomparable voices.
February 11, 2012: iconic caroler Whitney Houston was found underwater in the bathtub of her guest room during her stay at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. Houston was discovered only after her hairstylist and bodyguards realized she'd been in the bathroom longer than typical and failed to respond to several knocks on the door to check in on her.
The "I Will Always Love You" star's protection officers later retrieved Houston's body from the tub and administered CPR in hopes of resuscitating her before alerting paramedics to the scene. Regrettably, it was too late: Houston was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. PT.
The official coroner's report revealed that Houston had, in fact, died of accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine use referenced as contributing factors to her death.
In her lifetime, the decorated vocalist was considered one of the best-selling music acts of all-time, selling 200 million records worldwide and still holds the title as the only artist to achieve seven consecutive No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 singles, surpassing acts like The Beatles, Michael Jackson, and Mariah Carey.
Today, fans and celebrities all across the world are taking to Twitter to celebrate the life and legacy of the departed legend on the sixth anniversary of her passing.
