Over the past few days the world has mourned the loss of pop icon Whitney Houston, and last night’s episode of ‘Glee’ continued the celebration of the diva’s life and work with a Whitney tribute episode, in which actress Amber Riley performed an emotional cover of Houston’s most popular hit, “I Will Always Love You”.
Surprisingly, the episode (as well as the cover) was actually planned by ‘Glee’ producers long before Houston’s death, but following the news of the loss they made the decision to dedicate the episode to the late star, ending the episode with a short caption: “Whitney Houston 1963-2012. We will always love you.”
Watch a video of Riley’s performance here and let us know if you think she did the song justice.
