How Cissy Houston learned of Whitney's death

Almost one year to the day after Whitney Houston's death, Cissy Houston is releasing "Remembering Whitney," a book about her daughter's extraordinary life and untimely demise.

While promoting the memoir on “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” the 79-year-old gospel singer detailed the moment that she learned Whitney, nicknamed Nippy by her family, had died on February 11, 2012.

“My son called me and he was screaming, ‘Mom, Mommy.’ Then, oh God. I said, ‘What is wrong, what’s wrong?’ He just said, ‘Nippy.
