Los Angeles, Feb 12: Jennifer Hudson will perform at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night and will pay a tribute to late singer Whitney Houston.
Ken Erhlic, executive producer of the ceremony, has confirmed that Hudson will pay a tribute to the singer, who won six Grammy awards, at the ceremony that will take place Sunday at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, reports contactmusic.com.
“It’s too fresh in everyone’s memory to do more this time, but we would be remiss if we didn’t recognise Whitney’s remarkable contribution to music fans in general and in particular her close ties with the Grammy telecast and her Grammy wins and nominations over the years,” Erhlic told the Los Angeles Times.
“It’s hard to think of an artist who had such an incredible instrument, not to mention beauty, which made her difficulties in recent years even harder to accept,” he added.
Houston was found dead Saturday in the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. She was 48.
