An exhibition dedicated to late singer Whitney Houston is to open at The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles next month (Aug12).
Some of the star's memorabilia, including the white beaded gown she wore at the 1994 Grammy Awards, photographs, albums and her Bible, are to go on display following her death in February (12).
The event, called Whitney! Celebrating the Musical Legacy of Whitney Houston, is to open on 15 August (12) and is expected to run until February next year (13) in the Special Exhibits Gallery of the museum.
Houston's manager, sister-in-law Pat Houston, tells the Los Angeles Times, "This exhibit is a token of appreciation from our family for Whitney's fans to enjoy and embrace. We hope they are as elated as we are to have shared in such a remarkable life."
The Grammy Museum executive director Robert Santelli adds, "We are particularly excited to showcase her long connection to the Grammy Awards show and to celebrate the musical genius that made her one of America's most-awarded pop and soul vocalists."
Houston drowned in the bath at her suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel before a pre-Grammy Awards party on 11 February (12).
