Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Usher and several other musicians will pay tribute to Whitney Houston tonight during a special program tonight on CBS. We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston will air tonight at 10 pm EST.
We Will Always Love You: A GRAMMY® Salute To Whitney Houston was filmed last month at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. The program will feature performances from several Grammy winners like Yolanda Adams, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Usher and CeCe Winans. The show will focus on Houston’s six Grammy wins and will feature interviews and video clips from throughout her career.
Neil Portnow, the President of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, said:
“This is going to be a fun show and an entertaining show but I think the bottom line is that it’s going to be a very emotional show. This is all about Whitney. People will be talking about their feelings about Whitney. So I think at the end of the day it’s going to be a very emotional evening.”
In addition to the performers, Halle Berry, Taraji P Henson, LL COOL J and Britney Spears will present videos of some of Houston’s most memorable performances during the show.
The We Will Always Love You special comes just a few days after the release of Whitney Houston’s latest greatest hits album, I Will Always Love You — The Best Of Whitney Houston. The album, which was released last week, features 16 tracks classic tracks and two never-before-released songs. (You can hear Whitney Houston’s latest song, Never Give Up, here.)
Whitney Houston sold more than 170 million albums during her career. She won 6 Grammy Awards, two Emmy Awards, and 30 Billboard Music Awards.
