With this coming Sunday's awards night igniting Grammy fever throughout L.A., Whitney Houston was among the revelers having a grand old time at Thursday's "Kelly Price & Friends Unplugged: For The Love Of R&B Grammy Party" at Tru Hollywood.

The singer, herself a six-time Grammy winner, made her entrance two hours after the party got going, emerging from a Cadillac Escalade in a snug black cocktail gown with a plunging neckline.

Among her large party was her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, 18, and the two clutched hands on the red carpet before hastily heading inside the venue.

Inside, sitting within the VIP area with Bobbi Kristina and a large group, Houston, 48, seemed to be in great spirits. Shortly after 11 p.m., she had her hands in the air and was dancing to the R&B group Bell Biv Devoe's "Poison."

Moments later, El DeBarge, 50, arrived and, after making a beeline to Houston's table, the two shared a joyous hug.

Introducing her daughter to everyone who stopped by during the course of the night, Houston looked to be having a very happy time, before zipping off to what was said to be an even more private area of the club.

The 54th Annual Grammy Awards air Sunday on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/PT from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
