Houston daughter taken to hospital

The daughter of late singer and entertainer Whitney Houston has been found unresponsive in a bathtub and taken to a hospital.

Bobbi Kristina Brown was found by her husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend and given cardiopulmonary resuscitation, said a police spokeswoman.

When police arrived, they gave Bobbi additional care until she was taken alive to North Fulton Hospital in the Atlanta suburbs.

The incident remains under investigation, police said.

Bobbi is the only daughter of Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown. A representative for the family did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

Whitney was found dead in a hotel bathtub on February 11, 2012, in Beverly Hills, California. The 48-year-old had struggled for years with cocaine, marijuana and pills, and her behavior had become erratic.

Authorities examining the singer's death found a dozen prescription drug bottles in the hotel suite. They concluded that she accidentally drowned. Heart disease and cocaine use were listed as contributing factors in her death.

Over her career, Whitney sold more than 50 million records in the United States alone. Her voice, an ideal blend of power, grace and beauty, made classics out of songs like Saving All My Love For You, I Will Always Love You, The Greatest Love of All and I'm Every Woman. Her six Grammys were only a fraction of her many awards.

Houston had her first No 1 hit by the time she was 22, followed by a flurry of No 1 songs and multiplatinum records.

Houston left her entire estate to her daughter.
