VIDEO: Jennifer Hudson – Whitney Houston Tribute (2012 Grammy Performance)
Accompanied by only a piano, Jennifer Hudson paid tribute to the late Whitney Houston at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards. Clad in back, she sang an emotional rendition of Whitney’s iconic hit, “I Will Always Love You.” Following her performance, the singer released this statement:
“It was the greatest honor of my life to be able to be the one to pay tribute to Whitney’s memory. It was from my heart. I haven’t stopped crying since she passed. Her family is in my prayers.”
Chaka Khan was also scheduled to perform, but pulled out at the last minute to grieve privately.
