Fox411 Playlist: Music world mourns death of icon Whitney Houston

What was supposed to be a week of celebration with the Grammy Awards quickly turned to one of mourning with the death of Whitney Houston.

The 48-year-old singer was found dead in the bathtub of her Beverly Hill Hotel room on February 11th. The cause of death is currently undetermined as investigators await toxicology results. A private funeral will be held for the "I Want to Dance with Somebody" singer on February 18th in her hometown of Newark, New Jersey.

Fans are paying respect to  Houston and it shows on the Billboard charts as her album "Whitney: The Greatest Hits" re-enters the Billboard 200 at number six. Not to be outdone, stars showed their love for one of music's greatest voices this past Sunday at the Grammy Awards as host LL Cool J started the night off with a prayer. Later that evening, Jennifer Hudson sang a very moving rendition of one of Whitney's greatest hits, "I Will Always Love You."

While music's biggest night was a tearjerker for many fans, it did put a smile on Adele's face who swept the award show with six Grammys. The big night didn't stop there for the young star who showed that even after vocal chord surger she can still sing like never before. The 23-year-old singer made her live performance comeback at the big show performing "Rolling in the Deep" and it was received with a standing ovation. She's still got it!

The good news for Adele doesn't stop there as her album "21" is atop the Billboard 200 again and her newest single "Set Fire to the Rain" sits pretty at number one on the Pop Songs List.
