Happy 50th Birthday, Whitney Houston!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Whitney Houston would have celebrated a milestone today if she were still with us.

The late musical icon - who died of a drug overdose on February 11, 2012 - was born on August 9, 1963. So she would have been 50 years old today.

In honor of the occasion, let's relive Whitney's brightest moment, also known as The Singer Greatest Rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner in American History:

Since Whitney's death, her family has appeared on a reality show and her daughter Bobbi Kristina has been in the news for reasons both sad and tragic, happy and romantic.

We continue to send our best wishes to the singer's loved ones and we hope Whitney is currently resting in peace.

Other celebrities also turning a year older today include:

  • Justin Theroux (42)
  • Anna Kendrick (28)
