In the months that have followed the Feb. 11 death of singing legend Whitney Houston, music stars, fans and family alike, have wept for the loss of the singer. And while many stars have done their part to pay tribute to the icon, Houston’s mother, Cissy Houston, is now set to pay tribute to her daughter at the 2012 BET Awards.

According to the Associated Press, a source claims that Cissy and “a few top divas” will hit that stage at the awards ceremony to pay tribute to the “I Will Always Love You” singer.

The source could not give out the names of the other performers and decided to remain anonymous because the tribute has not been officially announced yet.

This year’s BET Awards will air live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday, July 1. Hopefully, we’ll see a grand Whitney tribute at the show.
