In a rather odd, fitting, yet sad twist of fate, hit television show Glee had already planned to do an emotional cover of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Dolly Parton[/lastfm]‘s song “I Will Always Love You,” made most famous by the recently-passed pop musical icon, [lastfm link_type=""]Whitney Houston[/lastfm], on The Bodyguard soundtrack.

While we don’t know the exact context of the song, it will be sung by Amber Riley a/k/a “Mercedes” during Glee‘s Valentine’s Day special, “Heart.”


[pullquote quote="Whitney had a huge impact on her."]“It’s a really crazy coincidence,” said Glee‘s music producer Adam Anders to Entertainment Weekly while at the GRAMMY Awards. “We are shell-shocked.”

“I was talking to Amber last night and she was really in a daze about it. It really flipped her out. She just met her on Thursday. Whitney had a huge impact on her.”
