AN exhibition paying homage to Whitney Houston was opened in Los Angeles on Wednesday (15.08.12).

The event, entitled 'Whitney! Celebrating The Musical Legacy of Whitney Houston', was launched at the Grammy Museum so fans can pay their respects to the late singer as well as seeing how talented she was.

Pat Houston - Whitney's manager and sister-in-law - attended the press preview on Wednesday as did her other sister-in-law Donna Houston and her brother Gary.

Pat said: "We have picked the things that people will find the most interesting and, in many cases, bring back fun memories.

"We are really very overjoyed that we are here today to represent and be a part of such a wonderful and splendid career of such a beautiful and talented woman."

The exhibition - which runs until February 2013, the month of the first anniversary of her tragic death - displays artefacts, photographs and footage from the Houston family's private collection.

The items on display included album and career scrapbooks, Whitney's personal Bible, rare photographs and stage costumes.

Whitney - who had a 19-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina with ex-husband Bobby Brown - was found dead in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills hotel room in February after suffering a huge heart attack partly brought on by her cocaine abuse.
