Whitney Houston will be remembered at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy Awards gala on Saturday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Houston was supposed to attend the same event last year, but was found dead in her hotel room just hours before the event was supposed to take place.
"She was this generation's greatest, greatest singing talent," Davis told E! News. "So we'll do something over the course of the evening Saturday night to show that."
Davis added, "It's very much with me and she'll be with me."
Some members of Houston's family are expected to be in attendance, but Houston's mother, Cissy Houston, won't be.
"I got an invitation to the party, which is the most obscene thing," she told Access Hollywood. "I don't know why they would want me to come to the party in which she died, you know? Unheard of."
On Saturday, CBS will air a behind-the-scenes look at how Houston's death affected the 2012 Grammys. The hour-long special is called "The Grammys Will Go On: A Death in the Family."
The 48-year-old Houston was found dead on Feb. 11, 2012, in a Beverly Hills hotel bathtub. Coroner's officials ruled her death accidental, with heart disease and cocaine use contributing factors. Organizers of the Grammy Awards, which were set to take place the following night, scrambled to set up a special tribute to the singer.
