The 'My Heart Will Go On' hitmaker will celebrate the life and legacy of the late singer in 'I Will Always Love You: A GRAMMY Salute to Whitney Houston'.
Celine Dion is going to be part of "We Will Always Love You: A GRAMMY Salute to Whitney Houston". She joins Usher and Jennifer Hudson to honor the late singer in a special concert hosted by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
The one-hour special will be taped on October 11 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. It will air on November 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. It will include never-before-seen footage and exclusive interviews as well as Whitney's most memorable performances of her career.
More performers will be announced soon. Tickets for the upcoming gig have gone on sale. Three days before the airing, RCA Records will release a compilation album, "I Will Always Love You - The Best of Whitney Houston", which features her hits and unreleased tracks.
As a rival to the CBS TV special, never-before-seen family photos and "candid insights" from the Houston family will be aired by Lifetime on "The Houstons: On Our Own". The new reality TV show follows the life of Whitney's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, sister-in-law Pat Houston and mom Cissy Houston post her untimely death. It will debut Wednesday, October 17.
