Trying to single out just one of Whitney Houston's songs as an all-time favorite feels like an impossible task: For so many of us, she provided the soundtrack to a number of memorable moments in our lives.
On Twitter Saturday night, #FavoriteWhitneySong was trending as fans shared some of their beloved tunes. Over the course of her career, Houston collected six Grammys, was the first artist to have seven consecutive No. 1 hits, and was undoubtedly the singer who influenced many of the pop stars we hear today.
But if we had to choose some of our favorite Houston songs, the list would surely include her smash from "The Bodyguard" soundtrack, "I Will Always Love You."
Dolly Parton, who wrote the song, said in a statement, "mine is only one of the millions of hearts broken over the death of Whitney Houston. I will always be grateful and in awe of the wonderful performance she did on my song and I can truly say from the bottom of my heart, 'Whitney, I will always love you. You will be missed.'"
That's not to mention some of her earlier cuts, like "I Wanna Dance with Somebody"
...And "How Will I Know."
And last but not least, her 1991 performance at the Super Bowl, which has been a gold standard for performing the national anthem for years:
The Recording Academy, which is preparing for Sunday's 54th Grammy Awards, said in a statement, "Whitney Houston was one of the world's greatest pop singers of all time who leaves behind a robust musical soundtrack spanning the past three decades. Her powerful voice graced many memorable and award-winning songs. A light has been dimmed in our music community today, and we extend our deepest condolences to her family, friends, fans and all who have been touched by her beautiful voice."
