Whitney Houston (born in New Jersey in 1963) sold over 170 million albums worldwide, making her one of the planet's most popular artists. Her biggest hits included Saving All My Love for You, I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me), and I Will Always Love You from the soundtrack to her film The Bodyguard, which remains the best-selling single by a female artist in music history. Houston died on 11 February after accidentally drowning in the bath due to the effects of chronic cocaine use and heart disease.
