Happy (Posthumous) Birthday, Whitney Houston

by at . Comments

Whitney Houston would have turned 49 years old today.

Sadly, of course, this is not the case, as the legendary singer passed away from an apparent overdose in February. But it's worth taking a few moments this morning in her honor and remember just how special and impressive of a voice this singer possessed.

Perhaps the greatest rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner in history will help jog your memory:

With fans having a chance to see Houston on screen one final time in Sparkle on August 17, thoughts continue to go out to Whitney's family, friends and loved ones.

Other stars celebrating a birthday today include: Anna Kendrick (27), Gillian Anderson (44), Deion Sanders (45) and Bob Cousy (84).
