UPDATE: Chaka Khan has pulled out of her Whitney Houston tribute performance at the Grammy Awards Sunday (Feb. 12). "As I grieve the loss of my friend and 'little sister,' I

don't feel it appropriate to perform at this time. Continue to pray for the family," Khan tweeted regarding the performance. Jennifer Hudson is still reportedly scheduled to sing Houston's 'I Will Always Love You.'

As reported by AOL Music, earlier today (Feb. 11) the death of singing legend Whitney Houston shocked the world. The diva, who died only hours before attending a pre-Grammy party in Los Angeles, will be honored tomorrow at that very award show by Jennifer Hudson and Chaka Khan.

'Entertainment Tonight' broke the news that the two powerhouse voices will come together to sing a tribute to the gone-too-soon diva. Throughout her illustrious career, Houston won six Grammy Awards and had been nominated twenty-six times.

"It will be something respectful," Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich told CNN. "It's not gonna be a full-blown tribute; to me that seems like it's too early, it's too fresh... [It will be] appropriate to Whitney's memory."

Houston's legacy will undoubtedly be a constant theme throughout tomorrow night's award show. Already the music industry has come out in droves to mourn the death of the singer. "She will never be forgotten as one of the greatest voices to ever grace this earth," Mariah Carey wrote on her Twitter page earlier this evening. "It's so sad to see such a great female artist gone," singer Dev tells AOL Music. "I'll miss that voice!!!"
