GRAMMY Rewind: Watch Jennifer Hudson Pay Tribute To Whitney Houston At The 54th GRAMMY Awards
Originally recorded and written in 1973 by Dolly Parton, "I Will Always Love You" is one of the most recognizable ballads in the entire history of pop music. Almost two decades later, the late, great Whitney Houston recorded her version for the 1992 film The Bodyguard, which famously won Record of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female at the 1994 GRAMMYs.
When Houston died in 2012, the Recording Academy paid tribute to the beloved performer; Jennifer Hudson performed a spare, stunning rendition of "I Will Always Love You," which you can relive in our latest edition of GRAMMY Rewind.
Wearing a simple black dress, Hudson performed the ballad backed by a simple piano. As she sang, photos of Houston and other great music people who passed that year flashed in the background.
