If there's any song that guarantees a full-on sobfest and requires a tissue stash refill, it's Whitney Houston's cover of Dolly Parton's iconic ballad, "I Will Always Love You."
Now another music legend's been added to the mix. Queen Bey herself recently included the song in her already glowing repertoire — and all our lives are better for it.
Beyoncé's covered the song on numerous occasions, but her most recent performance this past Saturday at the Center for Early Education's 75th Anniversary Gala in Los Angeles has left the Internet reeling. (The singer had previously performed the song in honor of the late Paul Walker in 2013, among other occasions.)
First made famous by Parton in 1974, "I Will Always Love You" was recorded again by the late Houston in 1992 for "The Bodyguard" soundtrack. The film was her first, premiering 20 years before her untimely death in 2012.
The power ballad's become the stuff of karaoke legend, but leave it to Beyoncé to make it her own. She padded the melody with a few of her own vocal riffs, maintaining a respectful distance from the original while still paying homage to the legendary tune we all know and love.
