Houston Family Really? Selling Whitney’s Awards


 An auction of Whitney Houston’s memorabilia has earned more than $500,000 despite a judge blocking the sale of an Emmy Award won by the late singer.

Heritage Auctions says the top bid in Friday’s auction was $20,000 for a pair of Nike Air Jordan sneakers given to Houston by NBA great Michael Jordan. A Dolce & Gabbana fur coat worn by Houston on stage sold for more than $16,000.

The auction featured several costumes worn by Houston, as well gold records and other items the Grammy-winning singer accumulated before her death in 2012 at age 48.

A federal judge on Thursday blocked Heritage Auctions from selling Houston’s 1986 Emmy trophy, which she won for a Grammy performance. The company returned the trophy to Houston’s family.   Story: Associated Press

I’m sure there is a story ,the sale of her Emmy and gold records seems to be a slap in the face of her fans.  There are many Museums who would happily take her gold records and countless awards of this Internationally known Superstar.     Ouch!
