Glee covers Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You

Hear Amber Riley's version of the song made famous by the late star


A cover version of Whitney Houston hit I Will Always Love You featured in an episode of high-school musical drama series Glee shown last night on US network Fox.


Amber Riley, who plays Mercedes in the show, belted out the song – originally recorded by Dolly Parton – as part of a storyline in which she opted to stay single rather than choose between the two men in her life.

The fact that the episode was broadcast so soon after Houston’s death at the weekend is a coincidence – it was recorded long beforehand – but a last-minute change added a line to the end credits that read “Whitney Houston 1963-2012. We will always love you.”
