Whitney Houston tribute show heading for Dubai

It's more than a year since chart-topping songstress Whitney Houston passed away and now a new tribute show celebrates her music. South African songstress Belinda Davis got fabulous reviews for The Greatest Love Of All – The Whitney Houston Show in her native country and now she’s bringing it to Dubai. It features all the hits of the late diva, includingThe Greatest Love of All, I Wanna Dance With Somebody and of course the showstopping I Will Always Love You.  Expect impressive costumes too - they’re based on Whitney’s - as well as backing from a live band. A total of 15,000 people in 12 countries auditioned for the part in the show, with Belinda coming out top.

Whitney was found dead in a LA hotel room in February 2012 aged 48. Her death was linked to substance abuse, according to tests. Stars expressed tributes to the star. Mariah Carey said: "Heartbroken and in tears over the shocking death of my friend, the incomparable Ms. Whitney Houston."
