Gov. Chris Christie announces that flags will be half-staffed on Saturday in honor of Whitney Houston.

According to the Governor, Houston was a "cultural icon" who belongs in the same category in New Jersey music history as Frank Sinatra, Count Basie and Bruce Springsteen.

Without a doubt, she is certainly a music icon and will forever be missed by the industry and around the world.
