Dolly Parton Set To Make Millions From Whitney Houston’s Version of Hit Single I Will Always Love You

 

Following the tragic death of Whitney Houston It’s been reported Dolly Parton is set to make millions of Houston’s version of I Will Always Love You. The singer wrote the song in 1973 and as she is the owner of the track she will profit from the record as it is expected to top the iTunes singles chart.

Houston recorded the track two decades later after it was written by Parton for the blockbuster Hollywood movie The Bodyguard.

During an interview on CNN with Anderson Cooper last month, the Steel Magnolias actress revealed: “When Whitney did it, I got all the money for the publishing and for the writing, and I bought a lot of cheap wigs.”

Many for Houston’s singles are to re – enter the UK Official Singles Chart and Official Albums Chart Top 200s.

Official Charts Company managing director Martin Talbot also said: “The tragic death of Whitney Houston came as a shock to her friends, colleagues and music fans across the world.

“Again, the British public is demonstrating its love of Whitney, just as it did for Amy Winehouse last year and Michael Jackson in 2009.

“The Official Charts will reflect that this weekend and, no doubt, in the coming weeks.”

Jennifer Hudson paid Houston a tribute at the 54th Grammy Awards on Sunday with a searing rendition of the single.
