With the sudden passing of Whitney Houston on Saturday, Feb. 11, the day before the Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, Calif., Atlantic City Weekly remembers her and encourages fans to leave their memories of her on our Facebook page or tweet @acweekly
Here is a photo of Houston, one of the all-time great singers in her prime, performing at the former Sands in Atlantic City in September 1994.
Here are a few PR shots that the Sands used to promote the show.
“Whitney Houston was a true New Jersey treasure. Her terribly premature death is an awful loss for her family and the incredible New Jersey musical family. Her soaring talent put her in the pantheon of great New Jersey musical talents like Frank Sinatra, Count Basie and Bruce Springsteen. Our prayers are with her family.”
