Grammy Performance of the Day/Jennifer Hudson/”I Will Always Love You”

It’s really hard to come up with words to describe Jennifer Hudson’s haunting Whitney Houston tribute at the 2012 Grammy awards. Perhaps it’s because we’re nearly days away from the three year anniversary of the singers untimely death on that fateful Grammy weekend. ¬†Or, maybe it’s because I can’t help but think of everything that’s been going on with Whitney’s only daughter, Bobbi Kristina. This past week, we’ve all been reading and watching in horror as Bobbi Kristina has seemingly met the exact same fate of her gone-too-soon music mother,Whitney, not to mention, almost to the exact day. There really are no words to describe it, especially when now watching Jennifer’s iconic Grammy performance.

Dealing with Whitney’s untimely death on the eve of the show in 2012, the Grammys had a bit of a problem. How would they address the singer’s death on such sad, short notice? That’s when the almighty Jennifer Hudson stepped up to the plate the only way she knew how-by singing Whitney’s signatures smash, “I Will Always Love You.” While you can see throughout the performance that Ms. Hud’s emotions were running very high, she managed to send chills down the spines of everyone watching with her flawless take on Whitney’s timeless tune. I give high praise to not only Jennifer for being such a strong diva, but to the Grammys for putting together such a moving moment in music time. Sigh….
