On November 28, 1992, Whitney’s iconic rendition of “I Will Always Love You” reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. “I think Dolly Parton is a hell of a writer and a hell of a singer. I was so concerned when I sang her song how she’d feel about it, in terms of the arrangement, my licks, my flavor. When she said she was floored, that meant so much to me.” – Whitney Houston

Originally from The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album, the song spent 14 weeks at #1 on the Hot 100 — a record at that time and Whitney’s longest run atop the chart. The track became a juggernaut, topping charts all over the world and winning critical acclaim. It won GRAMMYs in 1994 for Record of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female. In 2020, “I Will Always Love You” was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Recording Registry, and in January 2022 it was certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America.
