New documentary shows how Grammy producers, performers responded to Whitney Houston's death
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Producers of the 54th annual Grammy Awards have created a documentary showing how they adapted to the news of Whitney Houston's death less than 24 hours before the live telecast.
"A Death in the Family: The Show Must Go On" premiered Monday at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences' headquarters in Los Angeles.
Ken Ehrlich, who has produced the Grammy Awards for the past 32 years, introduced the film and participated in a panel discussion afterward with Recording Academy president Neil Portnow, Grammy host LL Cool J, musician Dave Grohl and other show workers.
LL Cool J said addressing the Grammy audience after Houston's death was "the most challenging moment I've faced in my career."
The 25-minute film can be seen on Grammy.com and at the Grammy Museum.
