    NEW YORK (AP) — Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson and Usher will pay tribute to the late Whitney Houston in a one-hour TV special.

    “We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston” will tape Oct. 11 at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live and will feature performances by Dion, Hudson and Usher. It will air Nov. 16 on CBS.

    The Recording Academy announced Thursday that the special will also include Houston‘s “most memorable performances” and interviews with various artists. More performers will be announced.

    Tickets for the event go on sale Thursday.

    Houston died at age 48 in February. Authorities called her death an accidental drowning, complicated by heart disease and cocaine use.

    The compilation album, “I Will Always Love You – The Best of Whitney Houston,” will be released on Nov. 13.

    I’m looking forward to this special.  Can’t wait to see Usher and Jennifer Hudson tear up Whitney’s hits.

    I want Usher to sing:
    “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)”
    “I Believe In You And Me”
    “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)”
    “I Will Always Love You”
    “I’m Your Baby Tonight”
    “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay”

    I want Jennifer Hudson to sing:
    “The Greatest Love Of All”
    “I’m Every Woman”
    “Million Dollar Bill”
    “My Love Is Your Love”
    “Run To You”
    “Saving All My Love For You”

    I guess Celine Dion can sing:
    “All The Man That I Need”
    “Heartbreak Hotel”
    “I Have Nothing”
    “I Look To You”
    “One Moment In Time”
    “You Give Good Love”

    Britney Spears is taking part in the tribute. Doubt she’ll be performing though.

    Tamia would make a good addition to this special and I could imagine her singing You Give Good Love or Exhale.

    Hudson, Spears, LL Cool J honor Whitney Houston

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jennifer Hudson embodied the look of one of her idols, Whitney Houston, during a tribute to the late singer put on by Grammy organizers.

    Rocking a pompadour and glittery jacket reminiscent of Houston‘s stage costumes from the 1980s, Hudson belted out a medley of Houston‘s hits Thursday at the Nokia Theatre for “We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston,” which will air as a TV special next month.

    “She has been a huge part of my life musically,” Hudson said. “She’s just been like this outline, this blueprint for myself.”

    Britney Spears, LL Cool J, Halle Berry, Taraji P. Henson, Usher, CeCe Winans and Yolanda Adams also participated in the musical tribute.

    Spears said she’s always been “a huge fan” of Houston’s.

    “I think she’s amazing,” Spears said. “And I think that her voice is better than God. I just, I love her.”

    Houston died at 48 the night before the Grammy Awards in February from accidental drowning complicated by drug use and heart disease. LL Cool J honored her at the awards ceremony in February but said Thursday that the singer’s musical contributions merit more.

    “The time that we spent remembering Whitney at the Grammys wasn’t really enough for her career,” he said. “Even though it was wonderful, and I got to say the prayer, and I got to address her death, her career was larger than just a few segments. You need a whole show to celebrate a career like Whitney Houston‘s.”

    The tribute is set to air as an hour-long special on CBS Nov. 13.

    T.D. Jakes, a minister and producer of Houston’s final film, “Sparkle,” said Houston’s early death can serve as a sad cautionary tale.

    “Our message and our heart’s cry to young people is to really govern the choices that they make, and that those choices have consequences, long term consequences,” he said. “It is not enough to be talented. We must also be wise.”

    If this had to be shown on CBS today, why did it have to be on when Blue Bloods is supposed to be shown? (shaking my head)

    God bless you always!!!
