Saving All Their Love: Five Whitney Houston Tribute Clips That Are “So Emotional”

In anticipation of Whitney Houston’s final movie, Sparkle, dazzling its way into movie theaters this Friday, we scoured the Internet for the greatest and gayest covers of Whitney songs.

Needless to say, there’s a goldmine of performances out there—from precocious preteens and disheveled drag queens to ambitious altos and confused foreigners. But we think we’ve complied some that are head and shoulder pads above the rest.

Click through for the top five viral-video tributes to the late, great Whitney Houston

      I wish y’all included Matt Alber on your list especially since he’s gay and did an AH-MAZING cover of I Wanna Dance With Somebody as well and is donating the funds for the song being bought to Larkin Street Youth Services (http://www.larkinstreetyouth.org) in San Francisco! http://youtu.be/O0T5T5ymA64?hd=1! iTunes – https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Ftinyurl.com%2Fblrb7x4&session_token=4SBAMHeSr4RYUXAZnllakQRvt6t8MTM0NDk4MTc4M0AxMzQ0ODk1Mzgz, CDBaby – p://www.cdbaby.com/mattalber3

      @TheBippi: The Matt Barber tribute was haunting and moving. It breathed new life into the lyrics. He also did the performance the day after she died, according to the post date, so he must have been in a very emotional state. Thanks for mentioning. My partner and I really love his music and voice. We’re going to by the single on iTunes.
