While Clive Davis throws his annual pre-Grammy party, many fans have gathered outside the hotel to pay tribute to the I Will Always Love You singer by laying flowers and lighting candles.

Davis began the party by saying, “Whitney would have wanted the music to go on, and her family asked that the music go on.”
