Jennifer Hudson will perform a tribute to Whitney Houston at the 2012 Grammy Awards, Recording Academy President and CEO Neil Portnow confirmed onstage Saturday night at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party. The award show's executive producer, Ken Ehrlich, announced on CNN that Chaka Khan will also join in honoring the late pop icon on Sunday night (February 12).

"It's too fresh in everyone's memory to do more at this time, but we would be remiss if we didn't recognize Whitney's remarkable contribution to music fans in general, and in particular her close ties with the Grammy telecast and her Grammy wins and nominations over the years," Ehrlich said.

"I'm speechless ... I'm in shock right now. Just pray for her and the family," Chaka tweeted upon hearing the news.

It is not yet known what other changes might be made to the show night in light of Houston's passing, but Neil Portnow issuing this statement on the loss of one of the music world's greatest artists: "Six-time GRAMMY winner Whitney Houston was one of the world's greatest pop singers of all time who leaves behind a robust musical soundtrack spanning the past three decades. Her powerful voice graced many memorable and award-winning songs. A light has been dimmed in our music community today, and we extend our deepest condolences to her family, friends, fans and all who have been touched by her beautiful voice."

Houston was found dead at 48 on Saturday in a Beverly Hills hotel, and police are still investigating the cause of death. She was best-known for mega-hits like "I Will Always Love You" and "How Will I Know," but her reach extended to the big screen as well with box-office hits like "The Bodyguard" and "Waiting to Exhale."
