Today, Aug. 9, 2013, would have been Whitney Houston's 50th birthday.

The singer, who died Feb. 11, 2012, at age 48, is being remembered by her family with a low-key dinner.

Houston's sister-in-law Pat Houston told Kevin Frazier of Insider.com about their plans: "We are celebrating with a private dinner at our home here in Georgia, that was one of Whitney's favorite birthday celebrations. It's a very emotional time for all of us but she would want us to celebrate with peace, love and happiness. Today, we celebrate a legacy of a matchless gift, Whitney Houston...To all of her fans, let's celebrate with divine peace, love and joy."

It was revealed recentlythat Houston's headstone reads: "I Will Always Love You," as a tribute to one of her biggest and most memorable hits.
