After news broke Saturday of Whitney Houston's death, musicians and celebrities took to Twitter to memorialize an icon they held dear as an idol and a friend.

The singer was found unresponsive at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. A cause of death was not immediately known. Houston was in town in part to attend Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammys party.

Her self-titled debut album, released in 1985, sold 25 million copies worldwide. In total, she released seven albums and three film soundtracks; a winner of six Grammys, Houston sold over 200 million albums and singles worldwide.
