The show will celebrate Houston's life and artistry through performances and interviews with various artists paying homage to the six-time GRAMMY® Award winner, and will include Houston's own most memorable performances of her career. The special will be broadcast on Friday, Nov. 16 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU will include highlights of nearly all of Houston's GRAMMY® broadcast performances, her classic performance of the national anthem at Super Bowl XXV in 1991 and her first-ever television appearance on "The Merv Griffin Show" in the early ‘80s, among other iconic performances and exclusive interviews. The special will also feature other artists sharing their memories of Houston, as well as additional highlights of her career.
Houston was one of the biggest pop stars — male or female — of all time, selling a combined 170 million albums, songs and videos, and garnering six GRAMMY and two Emmy Awards, among countless other awards and accolades. She graced the GRAMMY® stage eight times over the years — one of a few artists to have had the distinction of performing the most times on the annual broadcast. Most recently, she appeared as a presenter at the 51st Annual GRAMMY® Awards in 2009 (ultimately presenting Jennifer Hudson with her first GRAMMY® Award, for Best R&B Album).
WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU: A GRAMMY® SALUTE TO Whitney Houston is produced by AEG Ehrlich Ventures, LLC. Ken Ehrlich is the executive producer. Louis J. Horvitz is director. Clive Davis, Tom Corson and Kevin Beisler are producers.
