Whitney Houston, who ruled as pop music's queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown, died Saturday in Beverly Hills. She was 48.
Whitney Houston died Saturday at the age of 48, leaving behind a wealth of classic songs, performances and even interviews during her 26-year career. Check out some of them below.

Off her self-titled 1985 debut, this ballad was Houston first No. 1 single and earned the singer her first Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
"How Will I Know"
The dance tune, which was written for Janet Jackson, became Houston's second No. 1 single.
"The Greatest Love of All"
Nominated for Record of the Year at the Grammys, the song was Houston's third No. 1 single.
"I Wanna Dance with Somebody"
Houston's powerful rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl XXV in 1991 was one for the ages. It reached the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, and Houston donated all proceeds to the American Red Cross Gulf Crisis Fund.
