Fans, stans, and mourners, the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles is appealing to the deepest recesses of our souls, where we still shed tears for our icon, Whitney Houston.
Whitney! Celebrating the Musical Legacy of Whitney Houston, an exhibition that will delve into the voice’s life and career, will debut the same week as her last film, Sparkle, according to the Los Angeles Times. It will run from August 15 through February 2012.
The official website reports that the exhibition will “provide an in-depth look at all aspects of Houston’s creative life. Bringing together diverse artifacts, rare photographs and footage, the exhibit features dozens of items from the private collection of the Houston family.”
The GRAMMY Museum secured prized possessions from the Houston estate, including her stage costumes, career scrapbooks, and ticket stubs, for Whitney! Interviews with artists and who worked with or were influenced by Houston’s vocals and her closest family members and friends will also be featured.
Pat Houston, Whitney’s longtime manager told the Los Angeles Times that the exhibit is a token of appreciation for her sister-in-law’s fans.
“We hope they are elated as we are to have shared in such a remarkable life.”
Whitney Houston died in the Beverly Hills Hotel in February at age 48.
