Clive Davis at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala 2012
The show went on despite the, untimely death, of Whitney Houston. Houston was scheduled to attend and perform at Clive Davis' annual event, but in the wake of her death, the star such as P.Diddy, Tony Bennett, Kim Kardashian, Serena Williams, Diana Ross and more attended and celebrated her life. Clive Davis dedicated the entire gala to Whitney and said:
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 went on to say ask for a moment of silence for the Pop Star.
Tony Bennett even mentioned the legalizing drugs:
Alecia Keys made a special tribute to the singer and then began singing a line from 'Oh, I Wanna Dance With Somebody'!
