In this photograph from the Grammy Museum, you can see Whitney's 1990 Essence Award for the Performing Arts, her People's Choice Award for the mega-hit "I Will Always Love You" music video, and MTV Video Music Award for Best Female Video for "How Will I Know." Whitney performed both that song and "Greatest Love Of All" in her debut appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1986.

This photo from the Grammy Museum exhibit Whitney! Celebrating the Musical Legacy of Whitney Houston shows some of Whitney Houston's favorite awards. Among them are Whitney's 1994 World Music Award for World's Best-Selling Female Recording Artist Of The Era, one of her first Soul Train Music Awards, Whitney's American Black Achievement Award from Ebony, her first American Music Award for Favorite Soul/R&B Album and awards from Billboard and MTV Europe.

Whitney Houston's awards, some of which are shown on display at the Grammy Museum, reflect not only her startling singing talent, but also her commitment to artistic excellence and connection to her broad, worldwide audience. You can see many of Whitney's honors on display in this photograph, but they are a fraction of the several hundred awards that she received over the course of her unparalleled career. The Guinness Book Of World Records has recognized Whitney Houston as the Most Awarded Female Artist of All Time.

Donna Houston had a pivotal role in getting the Whitney Houston Grammy Exhibit together. Thank you, Donna!

Whitney Houston has won more awards and accolades than nearly every other recording artist of her time. Aside from winning six Grammy Awards, there have been Billboard awards, Rolling Stone awards, Emmy awards, American Music Awards, honors from MTV, Soul Train, Essence magazine, the NAACP and much more. Rather than keep her numerous awards on display throughout her home, Whitney modestly gathered them together in one room at her New Jersey house. Some of them are now on display at the Grammy Museum to celebrate her musical legacy.

Whitney! Celebrating the Musical Legacy of Whitney Houston is a special exhibit at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. The exhibit has been extended until May 2013 due to popular demand and features many items from Whitney's personal collection, including some of her costumes, awards and other memorabilia. This particular photograph by Richard Avedon was taken in 1987 as part of the photo shoot for Whitney Houston's second album, Whitney -- the first album by a female artist in music history to debut at #1 on the U.S. album chart.

Once in a while, we like to post stories of special things fans are doing and this is one we thought we should share:

UK Whitney fans Arthur T. and Lee H. (pictured below) have rented the oldest working cinema in the UK, called The Electric, in Birmingham and have arranged for a special screening of The Bodyguard on February 23, the 20th Anniversary.

Here is a picture of their invite:

Fans will be coming from all over the UK and points beyond. The movie will be shown on a fully HD screen with surround sound and the soundtrack will be playing when people enter the theatre!

Arthur and Lee have arranged to buy everyone a drink as they arrive and afterwards many are going for cocktails and dinner. They are expecting close to 50 friends and fans.

Arthur and Lee said they put this event together to show "how adored Whitney was and what a special place The Bodyguard holds for so many people". Fans interested in attending - you still can by e-mailing Arthur at

Whitney is like a princess in pink as she holds her GRAMMY Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the 42nd GRAMMY Awards.

We here at don't get out very often (it's true, we are kinda nerds like that!) but when we do its big. And this week, we had the amazing opportunity to attend the unveiling ceremony of Whitney's four wax figures at Madame Tussauds in NYC. The unveiling marks the first time in 200 years that the museum has created 4 different figures of the same person. All we can say is Madame Tussauds did an EXCEPTIONAL job depicting different points in her 30+ career.

Check out some candid photos we took from the event below and learn more about the historical event here.

Don't forget to leave a comment letting us know which wax figure is your favorite!

Tomorrow is the day - Whitney Houston will be immortalized in wax by Madame Tussauds when the wax attraction unveils four new wax figures of her tomorrow. The special unveiling will be held at Madame Tussauds New York.

It's officially GRAMMY Week! Check out this great pic of Whitney Houston onstage at the 51st Annual GRAMMY Awards held at Staples Center on Feb. 8, 2009, in Los Angeles.
