Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Celine Dion, CeCe Winans and Yolanda Adams all paid tribute to the late Whitney Houston in “We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston” — which was recorded in L.A. last month and aired on CBS on Friday (Nov 16).
The hour-long TV special honoring the R&B icon, who passed away earlier this year at the age 48 years old, also featured appearances from Britney Spears, LL Cool J, Taraji P. Henson, Halle Berry and Houston’s longtime mentor Clive Davis, who was seated in the audience with Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown and her fiance (…) Nick Gordon.
“She inspired a generation of little girls and women to believe in their own dreams and to know that they had within themselves the greatest gift of all,” lifelong fan Halle Berry told the crowd. “I was one of those little girls who then became a woman who never ever, ever, stopped loving Whitney Houston.”
