A beautiful tribute to the late Whitney Houston
As you all know, Whitney Houston passed away at the weekend, but coincidentally, Amber Riley’s rendition of ‘I Will Always Love You’ on Glee was aired on Valentines Day and by all accounts, was one of the big highlights.
Amber took to her twitter last night to express her feelings: “Ok I got through it, only minimal tears. I hope you are proud Ms. Houston. :) thanks guys for the kind words.”
Meanwhile, The Washington Post even went as far as to say that ‘many compared her performance to Jennifer Hudson’s at the Grammy Awards and deemed the “Glee” version far superior.’
Serious words, but we’re going to let you decide.
First up is Jennifer Hudson’s performance at the Grammys:
And now Amber Riley’s performance on Glee:
So, which one do you think is best? Obviously there are some differences, in that Jennifer sung live at the Grammys, whereas Amber's rendition was prerecord.
However, in our humble opinion, although both were brilliant, Amber’s one gave us proper goosebumps.
Let us know what you think!
