Thank gosh for the internest, because I totally forget that CBS aired their one-hour long Whitney Houston tribute special “We Will Always Love You: A GRAMMY Salute to Whitney Houston”. Hollywood’s biggest stars gathered to celebrate the music legacy of Whitney Houston. Presenters included Halle Berry, Britney Spears, Taraji P. Henson, Clive Davis, and LL Cool J.
Jennifer Hudson brought the audience to their feet with a dance medley of “I’m Every Woman,” “How Will I Know,” and “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me).” Usher pulled out his big boy voice and reminded us all he’s got an ah-mazing voice. He performed “I Believe in You and Me” from The Preacher’s Wife soundtrack. Gospel legends, CeCe Winans and Yolanda Adams, dueted on “Count on Me”. Celine Dion paid homage with one of her personal faves, “The Greatest Love of All.”
The special also included footage from Whitney’s first-ever television appearance on “The Merv Griffin Show,” her unforgettable national anthem performance at Super Bowl XXV in 1991, and her performance of “I Will Always Love You” at the 1994 Grammys.
Watch all the performances below.
