Christina Aguilera to honor Whitney Houston at American Music Awards

On Sunday, November 19th artist Christina Aguilera is humbled to honor the legacy of Whitney Houston in an exciting emotional performance.

After being introduced by actress Viola Davis, Aguilera will take the stage in a segment that will include a medley of the late singer’s hits to mark the 25th anniversary of Houston’s film “The Bodyguard,” which debuted in theaters November 1992.

Aguilera will be singing songs from the film’s record breaking soundtrack like the iconic cover of Dolly Parton’s, “I Will Always Love You,” which spent 14 weeks at number one on the Billboard hot 100 at the time. “The Bodyguard” soundtrack sold more than 45 million copies across the globe to become the best-selling movie album of all time.

Houston was a personal idol of Aguilera’s whom she confirmed her kindness to her as she was coming up in the business “will forever be cherished.”

Houston’s estate says the singer thought Aguilera was “one of the best voices she enjoyed in this generation of music.”

Houston died at the age of 48 in 2012.

The American Music Awards, or AMAs, will be given live on ABC this Sunday, Nov. 19.
