The Glee Valentine’s Day: A Tribute to Whitney Houston

The Glee Valentine’s Day: A Tribute to Whitney Houston

Fox’s Glee dedicated Tuesday’s Valentine’s Day episode to the late Whitney Houston when, through a strange twist of fate, the hour featured a cover of one of the late pop icon’s most memorable hits in I Will Always Love You. Originally written and performed by Dolly Parton, with Houston singing the track for 1992’s feature film The Bodyguard, Glee’s Amber Riley covered the song in an already emotional scene where her character chose to be single rather than choose between her current boyfriend Shane and her ex, Sam.

The producers of Glee opted to update the episode, which had been delivered to the network last Friday, the day before Houston’s death, and featured a dedication to the singer-actress in a title card that came at the end of the episode. The card read, “Whitney Houston 1963-2012. We will always love you.” Houston died on Saturday at the age of 48. Watch the full performance below:
