Whitney Houston, iconic pop superstar, died in Beverly Hills, Calif. at the age of 48.

According to the New York Times
, Houston was staying at the Beverly Hilton hotel and was going to attend a pre-Grammy party hosted by her mentor, Clive Davis. She was found in her room at 3.55 p.m., and paramedics tried to revive her for 20 minutes.

Many stars have expressed their shock on Saturday night during pre- Grammy festivities in Los Angeles. Simon Cowell told CNN that Houston was a benchmark.

Houston achieved success during the 1980s into the 1990s with her three octave voice span. She then deteriorated through many years of marijuana and cocaine addiction.

She is survived by her daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
