Christie released a statement Saturday night  which read, “Whitney Houston was a true New Jersey treasure. Her terribly premature death is an awful loss for her family and the incredible New Jersey musical family. Her soaring talent put her in the pantheon of great New Jersey musical talents like Frank Sinatra, Count Basie and Bruce Springsteen.”

Then Sunday, Christie added another message via Twitter: “Terrible day 4 NJ music w/passing of Whitney Houston. Fellow Mendham resident, she will be missed in NJ & the music world. pray 4 her family.”

Gov. Christe, who is often known for his hard-nosed, no-nonsense approach in dealing with politicians, showed his softer side in honoring the NJ musician. Whitney Houston was a native of Newark, NJ.
