Singer Whitney Houston has died at the age of 48 according to the Associated Press and other reports.

Houston had one of the defining pop-soul voices of the 1980s and 1990s. She was also a stage of the screen, appearing in such movies as “The Bodyguard” and “Waiting to Exhale.” Her career was marred by erratic behavior and struggles with substance abuse.
