Nancy Shevell, Paul McCartney pay tribute to Whitney Houston (Video)
Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell recently made a short and sweet stop to pay their respects to Whitney Houston.
On Monday, the Beatles legend and his new wife were spotted walking to the late singers' makeshift memorial near the Beverly Hilton hotel, where Houston died the day before. The couple, dressed casually in sweatpants and holding hands, surprised onlookers by laying a small bunch of yellow roses at the site.
After pulling up to the scene, McCartney and Shevell casually walked to the tribute, stopped for a moment to pay their respects and then the legendary singer-songwriter blew a kiss at her memorial. The pair then returned to their vehicle, and left - all within one minute (See video below, posted by the The Filipino Channel).
Houston died on February 11 at age 48 in her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel before her much anticipated appearance at a pre-Grammy party. The songstress' funeral is planned for Saturday, February 18, at a New Jersey church.
McCartney and Shevell, a New York heiress, wed in October 2011 at a central London town hall. She is his third wife. They married on what would have been the late Beatle John Lennon's 71st birthday. Lennon was murdered in 1980 after being shot by Mark David Chapman.
McCartney was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on February 9, and the singer took a chance to thank his Beatles bandmates.
"I couldn't have done it without, certainly three boys," McCartney said during his speech outside the Capitol Records building. "So I want to say thanks to those guys, John, George and Ringo."
The singer and songwriter was joined at the ceremony by Shevell and his 34-year-old son James. McCartney's star is located alongside his fellow Beatles, Ringo Starr, George Harrison and John Lennon in front of the Capitol Records building located at 1750 N. Vine Street in Hollywood, California.
