80s and 90 pop superstar Whitney Houston was found dead today in her Beverly Hills hotel room. She was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. (6:55 p.m. ET) at the Beverly Hilton hotel despite resuscitation efforts, a police spokesman said.

CNN reports that Beverly Hills Police Lt. Mark Rosen said there were “no obvious signs of criminal intent” and that the cause of her death is being investigated.

The New York Daily News reported earlier that the singer’s publicist Kristen Foster said Saturday that the singer had died, but the cause and the location of her death were unclear.

Houston was the the daughter of Cissy Houston, she was cousins with singer Dionne Warwick, and Aretha Franklin was her Godmother.

Before Houston achieved fame on her own, her first taste of success was the 1984 duet ‘Hold Me’ with Teddy Pendergrass.

One of Whitney’s biggest, and well-known hits was her remake of Dolly Parton’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ from ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack.

Whitney Houston’s 1985 hit ‘How Will I Know’ was originally intended for Janet Jackson, but she passed on it.
