Sharpton Leads Prayer

The choir and congregation hold hands as the Rev. Al Sharpton leads a prayer for Whitney Houston, during regular Sunday services at Second Baptist Church in Los Angeles, Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012. Houston, whose musical roots were in church gospel singing and ruled as pop music's queen until her majestic voice was ravaged by drug use and her regal image was tarnished by erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown, died Saturday, Feb. 11, on the eve of the Grammy Awards she once reigned over. She was 48. (AP Photo/Reed Saxon)
