Whitney Houston was one of the most influential singers of the past two decades. The world was shocked when she died earlier this year and everyone knew that recording industry would never be the same again.
If you are a Houston fan and are going to be in the Los Angeles area until the middle of February, then you’ll want to consider visiting the Grammy Museum located at 800 West Olympic Boulevard.
“Whitney! Celebrating the Musical Legacy of Whitney Houston” is one exhibit that enthusiasts of the artist will not want to miss. The museum worked with the Houston family to showcase her incredible life and career.
Although Houston’s life was plagued by repeated drug use and drama, the exhibit showcases all the positive aspects of her life. For example, according to the museum’s website, there are photos from her private collection, film scripts and album covers.
Other memorabilia include the Bible she always read, high school yearbook from when she was living in Newark, New Jersey, and church programs from when she was signing in her church’s choir. Fashion lovers will even get to see the ball gown she wore when she accepted Album of the Year and Record of the Year at the 1994 Grammys and an outfit she sported during the filming of her last movie role, “Sparkle.”
Tickets are range from $10.95 to $12.95 and the museum is open seven days a week.
Make your time in Los Angeles count. To do that, stay in a luxury L.A. vacation rental. When you come back to a house, not only do you have far more amenities than a hotel room, you’ll also have the privacy that is unavailable in typical accommodations.
