Jennifer Hudson has said she "hasn't stopped crying" since learning of Whitney Houston's death.

The Oscar-winning singer had less than 24 hours to prepare an emotional rendition of I Will Always Love You for the Grammys, after the star was found dead in a Los Angeles hotel.

Jennifer told Us magazine in a statement: "It was the greatest honour of my life to be able to be the one to pay tribute to Whitney's memory.

"It was from my heart. I haven't stopped crying since she passed. Her family is in my prayers."

Meanwhile US singer and actress Brandy, who co-starred with Whitney in the TV remake of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella in 1997, said she was devastated by the loss of her friend and mentor.

"My heart is destroyed. I lost my idol and dear friend. My prayers go out to Whitney's family and her millions of fans around the world," Brandy told Us in a statement.

"Whitney - the greatest voice of all time - you are my angel and I will always and forever love you."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

Don't bring your work home with you. Although you're wonderfully efficient in your job, you require different skills when dealing with friends and family. Be generous with your praise, resources and encouragement. Someone who is struggling needs moral support. Giving a lecture about personal responsibility will not help. Instead, lend a sympathetic ear. Ask questions. Picture things from the other person's point of view. A receptive attitude will strengthen your relationship.More
