One of the most celebrated singers of all time, Houston’s hits included classics including I Will Always Love You and Saving All My Love For You.

She was found dead in her hotel room, after a pre-Grammy Awards party.

Her final performance in London in 2010 saw her apologise to fans for the quality of her voice.

Tributes have been pouring in for the star.
