(Los Angeles, CA, February 13, 2012) -- On Wednesday, February 15 at 9:00 PM ET/PT, E! will present the "E! News Special: Whitney Houston: Last Days of a Legend." Hosted by Giuliana Rancic, the special will chronicle the events leading up to and immediately after Houston's untimely death, as well as reflect upon her magnificent career and tumultuous personal life.
With insight and interviews from those who were at the Beverly Hilton and interacted with Houston during the pre-Grammy festivities, including E!'s Ken Baker and Mark Malkin, the special will offer viewers an account of her actions and whereabouts during the final days of her life. Singer Kelly Price, who was the last person to ever share a stage with Houston on Thursday, February 9th, and Ricky Minor, Houston's long-time musical director, who was with her at that very concert, provide comments to E! about their impression of the late singer. Viewers will also hear from Allison Samuels who was scheduled to interview the singer the day she died and had been waiting for her arrival. E! also shares exclusive footage of what is thought to be the last time Houston was ever caught on camera, when she stopped by an E! interview taking place in the hotel a mere 48 hours before her death.
In 1985 Houston released her debut album, "Whitney Houston" and the accolades and awards quickly followed. However, despite her prolific professional career, Houston had her demons and openly battled addiction. The outpouring of shock, sadness and love that has resulted from her passing further cements the immense impact she had on the music industry - and the world. This E! News Special will provide viewers with a 360 degree look at her fascinating life and honor the singer/mother/daughter/friend that left this world too soon.
