13 02 2012

The entertainment industry was shocked with the news of Whitney Houston’s death, and from Tweets to official statements, they’ve all been expressing their mourning.

Hollyscoop caught up with Billy Ray Cyrus at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards show, and he told us how his daughter, Miley Cyrus is reacting to Houston’s passing:

“She’s so sad about the loss of Whitney Houston,” Billy Ray told Hollyscoop. “She was also very close with Etta James. Etta was a great influence to Miley. A lot of memories of me and Miley driving back and forth to the set of Hannah Montana with Etta James just roaring in the CD player.”

Billy Ray adds that Miley eventually became personal friends with Etta James.

“Miley and Etta struck up a friendship,” he told us. “You know, Etta was a great influence on all of us.”
