Jennifer Hudson singing Whitney Houston tribute @ Grammys

Whitney Houston

As the LA Times reports, Chicago’s Jennifer Hudson is going to do the honors Sunday night at the Grammys:

Whitney Houston, who found fame as one of pop’s biggest voices, has died. She was 48.

Grammy executive producer Ken Erhlich and his team were scrambling Saturday night to find a poignant and proper way to mark the passing of Whitney Houston and their plan was to have Jennifer Hudson perform a “respectful musical tribute” on the CBS broadcast on Sunday night.

“It’s too fresh in everyone’s memory to do more at this time, but we would be remiss if we didn’t recognize Whitney’s remarkable contribution to music fans in general, and in particular her close ties with the Grammy telecast and her Grammy wins and nominations over the years,” said Ehrlich, a key figure in the Grammys since the early 1980s.

UPDATE:The NY Post mentions Chaka Khan is on board for the tribute as well (update: though ends up she wasn’t).

R.I.P. Whitney
