The Grammy Museum unveiled a tribute to Whitney Houston on Aug. 15, put together by family members to celebrate the late pop star’s career.
The exhibit, titled “Whitney! Celebrating the Musical Legacy of Whitney Houston,” features items such as the singer’s iconic gowns, some of her Grammy awards, film scripts, modeling shots and personal memorabilia.
Highlights include a beaded gown that Houston wore at the 1994 Grammy Awards, private letters from legendary music producer Clive Davis and a tea cup that Houston drank out of before each performance. “We have picked the things that people will find the most interesting and, in many cases, bring back fun memories,” her sister-in-law and former manager Pat Houston told reporters.
Houston, 48, drowned accidentally in a hotel bathtub in Beverly Hills in February from what authorities said was heart disease and the effects of cocaine.
