Hudson, Spears, LL Cool J honor Whitney Houston
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jennifer Hudson embodied the look of one of her idols, Whitney Houston, during a tribute to the late singer in Los Angeles.
Rocking a pompadour and glittery jacket reminiscent of Houston's stage costumes from the 1980s, Hudson belted out a medley of Houston's hits Thursday at the Nokia Theatre for "We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston," which will air as a TV special next month.
Houston died in February at 48 from accidental drowning complicated by drug use and heart disease.
Britney Spears, LL Cool J, Halle Berry, Taraji P. Henson, CeCe Winans and Yolanda Adams also participated in the musical tribute.
Spears said she's always been "a huge fan" of Houston's, adding, "I think that her voice is better than God."
