Clive Davis is truly the man. At a Pre – Grammy party on Saturday night all the big names came to salute Mr. Davis including long lost Whitney Houston. After many rocky years personally and professionally Whitney came out in a skin tight animal print dress looking all that and more. She performed a short set which included some of her biggest hits like “I Will Always Love You”, “It’s Not Right but It’s Okay” and “I’m Every Woman”. Although Whitney ‘s voice was not as strong as it once was, and she did tend to stay away from the long high notes, she did a fabulous job and the audience was thrilled with her performance and glad to see her back.
Some other amazing performances of the night included Rod Stewart as the opening performer of the night and he started out with his hit song “Some Guys have ALL The Luck” and “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” Next in the musical lineup came King of Leon singing “Sex on Fire” and “Use Somebody”. Leona Lewis sang her hit “Bleeding Love” and P Diddy and Faith Evan along with a choir sang “I’ll Be Missing You” his tribute to Notorious B.I.G. Kelly Clarkson was there to sing her new hit “My Life Would Suck Without You” and “Piece of My Heart” an oldie by Janice Joplin. Josh Groban filled in for Usher, who was unable to attend due to a family emergency, and sang “Bridge Over Troubled Water”. Even Jennifer Hudson was there who sang a duet with Barry Manilow in addition to one of her own songs, “Spotlight.” Like I said it was quite a night or should I say concert spectacular?
Others in attendance were Quincy Jones, of course, along with the Foo Fighters, Talyor Swift, Natalie Cole, Miley Cyrus, Dwight Yoakom and Earth Wind and Fire. There were even some big name non musical people there like Melanie Griffith and hubby Antonio Banderas, Val Kilmer, Jon Voight and Jamie Foxx and so many many more. Clive Davis has done so much for so many and his famous friends just can’t do enough for him or thank him enough for all he has done for them.
