Last night, platinum-record-seller Jordin Sparks honored the late Whitney Houston with a heartwarming rendition of “I Will Always Love You” at the Billboard Music Awards. The two performers co-star in the upcoming movie musical Sparkle, Houston’s last film role before she died in February.
Sparks’ performance was part of a larger tribute to Houston—John Legend sang a beautiful rendition of “The Greatest Love of All,” and Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, accepted the Millennium Award on behalf of her mother. “I just really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all, not just from when it was good, but when it was bad, to just everything,” said Brown. “I’m just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman’s life. There will never be another one, ever.”
