Whitney Houston live album due in November

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Nearly three years after her death, an album and DVD of live performances by Whitney Houston is to be released in November, her long-time producer announced on Tuesday.

"She was without question the greatest vocalist in the world," Clive Davis told NBC television announcing the November 10 release of Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances. "There was no one like her," he added.

Houston died in February 2012 on the eve of the Grammy Awards at age 48. She was found dead in her hotel bathroom, shortly before a party in the hotel hosted by Davis.

A coroner ruled that the singing legend died of accidental drowning, with cocaine and heart disease listed as contributing factors.
