*Whitney Houston’s life, her influences and how she will be remembered are among the topics covered in a special issue of Entertainment Weekly with the late superstar on the cover.

At the Grammys, Bonnie Raitt, Diane Warren and other major music industry figures spoke to EW about her influence on their own work and on the music business as a whole.

“She broke the glass ceiling for female R&B singers to cross over,” Raitt said.

Editors also compiled an ultimate Whitney playlist, featuring 25 of her best songs, as well as a collection of her life in photos.

EW’s Whitney Houston issue arrives on newsstands today.
