The latest Whitney Houston tribute will be a concert next month, entitled ‘We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston’. R&B stars Usher, Jennifer Hudson and R. Kelly are the first performers announced to honour the late diva. Although the one-hour special will be filmed on October 11th at the Nokia Theatre, it won’t see a broadcast until November on CBS. The show will consist of unseen footage and exclusive interviews from several artists cherishing her memory.
I really hope Beyoncé, Monica or Brandy signs on for this tribute. Each time it seems Jennifer Hudson is the go-to person to honour Whitney. I have nothing against Ms Hudson but she is not the only young powerhouse that can SANG and do a Whitney cover justice. Whitney’s greatest hits album ‘I Will Always Love You – The Best of Whitney Houston’ will drop in stores on November 13th, and features the R. Kelly duet ‘I Look to You’, which you can listen to here. Who would YOU like to see perform?
