Whitney Houston's Headstone Revealed, Reads "I Will Always Love You"
Seventeen months after her untimely death, Whitney Houston's grave finally has its own headstone in Westfield, New Jersey. The Grammy-winning singer is buried next to her father, John Russell Houston, Jr., in Fairview Cemetery.
The marble monument is shaped like a teardrop and is overlaid with a heart-shaped engraving of the singer's head. It features her name, as well as the dates of her birth and death. Underneath, "The Voice" (a name given to her by her mentor, Clive Davis) is etched in capital letters, and below that, the title phrase from her No. 1 hit song, "I Will Always Love You."
Houston died on Feb. 11, 2012 in her Beverly Hills hotel room at the age of 48. An autopsy later revealed her cause of death to be accidental drowning; heart disease and "chronic" cocaine use were also listed contributing factors.
The music legend was laid to rest on Feb. 19, 2012, just one day after friends, family members and fans honored her during a four-hour funeral service at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey.
The "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" singer is survived by her 20-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina (with ex-husband Bobby Brown).
