Dubai Fountain's Whitney Houston tribute goes viral

By Staff/YouTube

The Dubai Fountain – one of the emirate’s top attractions and a must-see for tourists – has once again gone viral on the internet with its latest show synchronised to the late Whitney Houston's famous ‘I Will Always Love You’.

Houston died in a Beverly Hills hotel room Saturday on the eve of the music industry's Grammy Awards, and because of her drug battles, speculation arose that she might have died of a drug overdose.     

There has been an outpouring of grief from her legions of fans across the world, as well as in Dubai where she performed eight years ago today.

Whitney Houston's body arrived in her home state of New Jersey on Monday night, ahead of a funeral expected later this week for the pop superstar whose blockbuster career was often overshadowed by drug and alcohol abuse.  

As with the 2009 death of pop superstar Michael Jackson, Internet sales of Houston's songs surged after her death.     

On Monday, her album "Whitney Houston - The Greatest Hits" was the top seller in the music category on Amazon.com, and "I Will Always Love You," was the No. 1 download at iTunes, just ahead of Grammy winner Adele's "Rolling in the Deep."
