Whitney Houston’s death last night will cast a big shadow over Los Angeles as the music elite gather for the 2012 Grammy Awards. Adele, Coldplay, Paul McCartney, and Bruce Springsteen are already schedule to play at the ceremony, and according to the show’s website, Jennifer Hudson has been added to the bill and will sing a few Whitney Houston songs.

Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy, said:

“A light has been dimmed in our music community today, and we extend our deepest condolences to her family, friends, fans and all who have been touched by her beautiful voice.”

Houston won six Grammy Awards during her career. Her first came in 1985 when she won Best Pop Vocal Performance for “Saving All My Love for You.” She won the same award the following year for “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me).” Houston won three Grammy Awards in 1993, for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Record of the Year, and Album of the Year. Her latest win came in 1999 when she won for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay.”

It isn’t clear what songs Hudson will perform but she has plenty to choose from. Whitney Houston had 11 No. one hits and is one of the best selling artists of all time. (You can read about more of her accomplishments here.)

Mariah Carey wrote:

“Heartbroken and in tears over the shocking death of my friend. She will never be forgotten as one of the greatest voices to ever grace the earth.”
