The 21 year old shared a series of photos on her blog to commemorate the big day, and one shot featured a tasty treat decorated with candles in Houston's honour. In the accompanying caption, she wrote, "#HappyBirthdaymommy ! #HappyBirthdayWhitney ! #AllAugustAllWhitney #iloveyou ! ...#Family (sic)." Brown, the late singer's only child with ex-husband Bobby Brown, wasn't the only one to remember the special date. R&B icon Mary J. Blige shared a photo of her old pal and wrote, "Happy Birthday to angel with the voice of God, and my friend. I miss you so much!!! #WhitneyHouston #BirthdayGirl". Singer Monica also shared an image of the I Will Always Love You hitmaker and wrote, "August 9,1963 (an) angel was born.... You inspired, you loved, you gave so freely of yourself & your amazing gift ?? #ForeverLovedAndMissed #TheVoice #OneofOne (sic)", while Kelly Rowland added her own tribute, stating, "#Happy Birthday Whitney #ForeverWhitney". Houston died from accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors, in February, 2012. She was 48.
