The 54th Annual Grammy Awards began with host LL Cool J saying a touching prayer for Whitney Houston just one day after her tragic death and RadarOnline.com has the video of the tribute.

“There’s no way around it,” the rapper said to the somber crowd.  “We’ve had a death in our family. For me, the only thing that feels right is to begin with a prayer for a woman who we love, for our fallen sister, Whitney Houston.”

The audience, which included Adele, Lady Gaga, and Paul McCartney, bowed their heads.

“Heavenly Father, we thank you for sharing our sister Whitney with us. Today our thoughts are with her mother, her daughter and all of her loved  ones.  And although she is gone too soon, we remain truly blessed to have been touched by her beautiful spirit, and to have the legacy of her music to cherish and share forever. Amen.”

A video was shown of Whitney at the Grammy Awards in 1993 singing “I Will Always Love You” looking fabulous, glamorous and at the top of her game.
