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.

A little lady with a big voice, Aliyah Kolf from Holland’s Got Talent, sings “I Have Nothing” even though she is obviously everything.


Taiwanese singing sensation Lin Chu Yun is about as far away from New Jersey-born Houston as you can get, but his performance of “I Will Always Love You” on Ellen transcends age and borders.


We think everyone can agree that grandmas doing anything is automatically the best, but take some grannies doin’ herr and lip-synching to Whitney’s “I”m Every Woman” and try not to explode from the sheer awesomeness of it.


This six-year-old girl can’t even speak English but music is the universal language and little Amy is fluent in Whitney. Homegirl sings “Saving All My Love for You.”


This is a decidedly more somber take on Whtiney’s usually ebullient “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” but Jake and Lee Newton give the tune a kind of haunting beauty. And it doesn’t hurt that Jake’s a certified hottie, either.
