Whitney Houston was one of the many stars who’s life ended way too soon. Nonetheless, the platinum selling artist left behind a legacy that will live on for years to come.
Now fans will have the opportunity to buy some of the songstress’ personal belongings. Some items that are up for auction include her Marc Bouwer wedding dress, Dolce & Gabbana Diva coat and even her passport.
According to Billboard, David Gest, a family friend helped pick 119 pieces that captured the true essence of Whitney starting from the beginning of her career.
Garry Shrum, Heritage Auctions director of Entertainment and Music Memorabilia said, “We gave them some ideas, they gave us some ideas, and we came up with this 119-piece collection that’s basically a retrospective of Whitney from the beginning, from when she first started singing after she left being a background singer for Chaka Khan and Lou Rawls.”
He continued, “We have her passport from the beginning, all these various awards and outfits, all kinds of cool and groovy things.”
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a charity of the Houston family’s choice.
