RECAP: Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston PerformancesMon, Nov 19, 2012
Filmed in October 2012, Los Angelesâ€™ Nokia Theater was packed with those ready to celebrate Houstonâ€™s life and talent. Her mentor Clive Davis, daughter Bobbi-Kristina and boyfriend Nick Gordon, and brother Gary and his wife Pat Houston were all present in the audience.
Jennifer Hudson had the crowd up and on their feet when she opened the show dressed like Whitney circa 1986 and belted a medley of Houstonâ€™s dance hits â€śIâ€™m Every Woman,â€ť â€śHow Will I Know,â€ť and â€śI Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me).â€ť Usher sounded better than ever during his rendition of â€śI Believe in You and Meâ€ť from The Preacherâ€™s Wife soundtrack. Gospel powerhouses CeCe Winans and Yolanda Adams dueted on â€śCount on Me,â€ť and holding her own as a powerhouse in her own right, Celine Dion came out of seclusion to pay homage by singing â€śThe Greatest Love of All.â€ť
