“Your voice will always be in our hearts forever and your music will light the way for generations to come! Rest In Paradise Sweet Friend. #WhitneyHouston,” wrote Alicia, who appeared on Houston’s last album, 2009’s I Look to You.

Alicia’s husband, Swizz Beatz, also paid homage to Houston, with whom he collaborated. “Blessings to Whitney The Great  It was an honor to have worked with such a great soul on your last album  #theDeans,” Swizz wrote on Instagram.
