LL Cool J spent the night preparing for the Grammy’s because he had been selected to be the host for the Grammy Awards of 2012. During his preparation, he received a startling call in which he found out about Whitney Houston’s death. Once the rapper and actor heard the news, he decided to switch up the beginning of the ceremony, starting it off with a prayer for the late Whitney Houston, especially since the music industry had now suffered such a huge loss as a music icon passed away.

The decision LL Cool J made has been added into a documentary that portrays the way that Whitney Houston’s death right before the Grammy’s changed the awards ceremony. The Grammy Awards are known for being the biggest awards ceremony for the music industry and for a music legend to die directly before, there was a huge impact. A documentary has been made about the changes that had to take place due to her death, which is referred to as A Death in the Family: The Show Must Go On. The documentary film was made in the LA area.

While LL Cool J decided to start the ceremony off with prayer, he was not sure exactly how he was going to make it happen. He asked his wife for her opinion and she believed that it was a good idea. LL Cool J simply was not sure whether or not the executive producer of the Grammy’s, Ken Ehrlich, would be fond of the prayer idea. He decided to go with it anyway. After all, the CEO of The Recording Academy, Neil Portnow, made it clear that Whitney would want the Grammy’s to continue even though she passed. Portnow says that Houston would have said, “It is all about the music and the show must go on.”
