Celebrity ISH: Clive Davis Remembers Whitney Houston At Pre-Grammy Gala

Clive Davis, the man who was responsible for uncovering the gem that was Whitney Houston didn’t shy away from his annual pre-GRAMMY party, last night [Feb. 11] at The Beverley Hills Hotel, but instead used the occasion to celebrate the life of his dearest friend.

Davis, before heading into the hotel, was seen being comforted by another one of his great gems, Alicia Keys, alongside her husband Swizz Beatz.

Davis described Whitney as ‘full of life’ and a ‘beautiful person’ and said that she ‘would have wanted the music to go on.’

By now you have all learned of the unspeakably tragic news of our beloved Whitney’s passing. I don’t have to mask my emotion in front of a room full of so many dear friends. I am personally devastated by the loss of someone who has meant so much to me for so many years.

Whitney was so full of life. She was so looking forward to tonight even though she wasn’t scheduled to perform. She loved music and she loved this night that celebrates music.

My heart goes out to her daughter Bobbi Christina, to her mother Cissy, to all of her relatives and to so many of you here tonight, her extended family who loved and cherished her and her spirit.

Whitney was a beautiful person and a talent beyond compare. She graced this stage with her regal presence and gave so many memorable performances here over the years. Simply put, Whitney would have wanted the music to go on and her family asked that we carry on.

I ask that you join me in a moment of silence as we dedicate this evening to Whitney.

Clive was responsible for reviving Whitney’s career after her break from music and he never stopped believing in her.
