Glee's Mercedes Takes On Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You"
We're still reeling over the passing of one of pop's greatest voices, the irreplaceable Whitney Houston. And last night on Glee's Valentine's Day episode entitled "Heart", singer Mercedes (aka Amber Riley) took on one of the greatest love songs of all time, "I Will Always Love You". Coincidentally, Amber was scheduled to perform the song on Glee long before the news of Whitney Houston's untimely passing, and Glee music producer Adam Anders says Amber was deeply affected when she heard the news:
"I was talking to Amber last night and she was really in a daze about it. It really flipped her out. She just met her on Thursday. Whitney had a huge impact on her."
Watch the emotional performance from last night's episode here:
We thought that Amber did a simply beautiful cover of the classic love song. What a voice!
