Though originally written and recorded by Dolly Parton in 1973, the song “I Will Always Love You” became synonymous with Whitney Houston when she covered it in 1992.
Parton’s version was also successful reaching number one on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart twice after she re-recorded it for the movie soundtrack of “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”.
The song was released off another movie soundtrack 10 years later, however this time it was Houston’s version for the film The Bodyguard.
Whitney’s version took the song to a whole other level with her single of the tune spending 14 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
Her single went on to be one of the best-selling singles of all time and still holds the record for being the best-selling single by a woman in music history.
After Whitney’s death in 2012, the song made its way back to the charts, making it the second single ever to reach the top three on the Billboard Hot 100 in separate chart runs.
Today Sara is taking on this legendary tune and I hope you enjoy her version as much as I did. Please make sure to share your feedback on her performance in the comments!
