By Robert "Rob" Redding Jr.

ATLANTA, Feb. 16, 2012, 9:30 p.m. - Syndicated talk show host Joe Madison yesterday said that the late singer Whitney Houston was one of the people responsible for saving the NAACP Image Awards from obscurity.

Madison, who served as the chairman of the awards, said Houston and Denzel Washington interrupted filming of "The Preachers Wife" in 1996 to travel across the country to Los Angeles to host the Image Awards.

"It took hours to tape the show and Whitney never complained," Madison said, "She was the picture of patience and grace, and that's how I choose to remember her."

Houston was found dead in her hotel room on Saturday.

Madison, the 30-year veteran of talk radio, known to his audience a The Black Eagle, is heard nationwide weekday mornings on The Power (SiriusXM 128), WOL-AM in Washington, D.C. and on American Forces Radio.
