Seems like the organization responsible for the Grammys are making some changes to the script in the wake of the death of one of the biggest musical icon the world has ever known, Whitney Houston. The show’s producers, very recently confirmed that Jennifer Hudson will be leading a musical tribute to Houston. Ken Ehrlich, the show’s executive producer says he plans to honor the death of the singer with a ” respectful musical tribute”. He adds “It’s too fresh in everyone’s memory to do more at this time, but we would be remiss if we didn’t recognize Whitney’s remarkable contribution to music fans in general, and in particular, her close ties with the Grammy telecast and her Grammy ins and nominations over the years”.
Recording Academy President Neil Portnow admitted that Houston’s death led them to try as much as possible to come up with an appropriate way to celebrate the life of the singer in the Awards show. “We’re in the process of deciding creatively what might be approporiate, and what we can do tomorrow. Certainly she will be in our hearts.”
