Nearly six months after Whitney Houston’s untimely death, fans will have the opportunity to view the legendary singer’s vast collection of memorabilia at a special exhibit at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. The exhibit dubbed “Whitney! Celebrating the Musical Legacy of Whitney Houston,” will display items such as Houston’s bible, photographs and her famous white gown worn during the 1994 Grammy Awards will be among the many things.
“This exhibit is a token of appreciation from our family for Whitney’s fans to enjoy and embrace,” Houston’s manager Pat Houston told the Los Angeles Times in a statement. “We hope they are as elated as we are to have shared in such a remarkable life,” while museum executive director Robert Santelli added; “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.” In addition to Houston’s upcoming exhibit, which will run from August 15 through February 2013, BeBe Winans’ book “The Whitney I Knew” is set to hit stores on July 31 followed by the singer’s much anticipated role in “Sparkle” scheduled to open in theaters August 17.
