Producers at the 54th annual Grammy Awards had less than a day to pull together a fitting tribute to Whitney Houston, who tragically died just the day before the big awards ceremony. They called upon Oscar and Grammy-award winner Jennifer Hudson to use her big voice to pay tribute to the legendary icon.
A somber looking Jennifer appeared on stage and performed the Whitney classic, “I Will Always Love You.” J. Hud was in fine voice and gave a moving, heart-felt tribute to the late diva. She received a standing ovation from the audience once she finished the performance.
Whitney Houston died yesterday (February 11) at the age of 48. Houston is survived by a daughter, Bobbi Kristina, whom she had with ex-husband Bobby Brown.
