The world is still in shock and struggling to understand Whitney Houston‘s sudden and unexpected death, especially since she was preforming only a day ago.
Taking the stage for the Kelly Price & Friends Unplugged: For The Love of R&B Grammy Party at True Hollywood, Houston sang a gospel tune for her last public performance: “Yes, Jesus Loves Me”.
Sources are saying a member of Whitney‘s entourage found her in her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel and called hotel security who then dialed 911. When paramedics arrived Houston was found unresponsive. She was in town for Clive Davis‘s Grammy Party.
TMZ is reporting that Houston was taking Xanaz, which she had a prescription for. Xanaz is used to treat anxiety and depression. They are also reporting that Houston was drinking heavily, and mixing Xanax and alcohol can lead to sedation, which could have caused her to fall asleep in the bathtub, where she was found. The L.A. County Coroner will perform an autopsy — possibly today — to determine if Whitney died from drowning, and OD or other causes. A search warrant was executed by the Beverly Hills Police, several prescription bottles, none illegal.
