On Thursday, Oct. 11, a number of celebs celebrated the life and legacy of the late Whitney Houston. Jennifer Hudson, CeCe Winans, Usher, Britney Spears, Halle Berry and Taraji P. Henson were just a few celebs on hand for the GRAMMY’s “We Will Always Love You: A Salute to Whitney Houston” celebration. During the night of performances, speeches and dedications, Houston’s 19-year-old daughter was spotted in the audience looking content and happy with her adopted brother, now fiancé, Nick Gordon. The two posed happily together for photos while Hudson and Usher performed.
Jennifer Hudson’s performance was said to be a highlight of the evening with the Weight Watchers spokeswoman showing off her slender physique while channeling Houston for a performance of her ’80s hit “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” The star-studded tribute will air Nov. 16 at 10 p.m. EST/PST on CBS as part of a one-hour special.
