Whitney Houston's mother to perform tribute

Wednesday June 20, 2012

Whitney Houston's mother will apparently perform a tribute to her late daughter alongside other female singers at the upcoming BET Awards.

Cissy Houston will take to the stage at the awards show on July 1 to honour her daughter, according to a source familiar with BET's plans.

She will be joined by "a few top divas", the insider said.

Chart star Whitney died in February at the age of 48. Authorities called her death an accidental drowning, complicated by heart disease and cocaine use.

The BET Awards will air live from The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Kanye West, Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z are the top nominees.
