Clive Davis, the man who discovered Whitney Houston in a New York City club when she was just 19 years old, gave a touching tribute to the singer at his Grammy party last night, the one in which she was set to attend.
Many rumors were swirling that Clive was planning on canceling the event in the wake of Whitney's death, but Clive told party-goers that she "would have wanted the music to go on."
The mood in the room was said to be somber as attendees were seen hugging each other and shaking their heads in disbelief.
While on stage, Clive told the crowd that "she loved music and she loved this night that celebrates music." He then held a moment of silence before dedicating the night to her.
Whitney will be greatly missed.
