If it wasn’t clear before, it definitely is now: We will always love Whitney Houston. She left an indelible mark throughout the world that is still resonating seven months after her untimely death.
After tributes at the Grammy’s, the Billboard Music Awards and the BET Awards, the music world isn’t prepared to stop honoring the icon.
The Associated Press is reporting that the Recording Academy has organized a one-hour TV special for Houston. “We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston” will feature performances from Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson and Usher. More performers will be revealed as the date approaches.
The special, which will be taped October 11 at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live, will also include footage of Houston’s “most memorable performances and interviews with various artists” according to the Associated Press.
Tickets for the TV special go on sale Thursday. CBS will air the special tribute on November 16.
This news comes on the heels of an announcement from Clive Davis that a greatest hits compilation is forthcoming. “I Will Always Love You – The Best of Whitney Houston” will feature a new mix of “I Look to You” with R. Kelly. It is scheduled to be released on November 13.
