Take a moment to remember Whitney Houston, Larry
Hagman, Michael Clarke Duncan, and the many other stars who faded away in 2012.
Although Whitney Houston's troubles were never a secret, her death, which occurred over Grammy weekend on February 11, shook the music world. As details unfolded of how the iconic superstar known simply as "The Voice" died, in a hotel bathtub after using cocaine and accidentally drowning, the story was even more heartbreaking. Only 48, the six-time Grammy winner, whose record sales in the U.S. alone totaled $55 million, left behind an untouchable musical legacy with songs including "I Will Always Love You" and "Greatest Love of All."
