If you are a Whitney Houston fan or just a lover of real good music, then the Grammy Salute to this singing legend is not going to be something you will want to miss.  What appears to be shaping up as a forever classic show is bringing out THE BIG GUNS of what is determined as “real singing” in todays music industry.  Below are the details from today’s news release from The Recording Academy that hit my inbox this morning and you are reading it here first!!!

“We Will Always Love You: A GRAMMY® Salute To Whitney Houston” is set to air this Friday, Nov. 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the CBS Television Network (www.cbs.com). The special, which was taped last month at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE, features artists paying homage to the six-time GRAMMY winner with performances from four-time GRAMMY winner Yolanda Adams, five-time GRAMMY winner Celine Dion, GRAMMY and Academy Award® winner Jennifer Hudson, seven-time GRAMMY winner Usher, and 10-time GRAMMY winner CeCe Winans. Academy Award winner Halle Berry, actress Taraji P Henson, two-time GRAMMY winner LL COOL J and GRAMMY winner Britney Spears present a special collection of clips that celebrate Houston’s life and artistry through performances and interviews. The show will be broadcast in HDTV and 5.1 surround sound.

“We Will Always Love You” will include highlights of nearly all of Houston’s GRAMMY telecast performances, her classic performance of the national anthem at Super Bowl XXV in 1991, and her first-ever television appearance on “The Merv Griffin Show” in the early ’80s, among other iconic performances and exclusive interviews. The special will also feature other artists sharing their memories of Houston, as well as additional highlights of her career.

The first-ever definitive single disc collection of Houston’s greatest hits, I Will Always Love You — The Best Of Whitney Houston, was released Tuesday, Nov. 13, and features 18 tracks, including two never-before-released songs. Additionally, an official Houston photo tribute book, Whitney: Tribute To An Icon, will be available for sale on Nov. 27.

“Whitney! Celebrating The Musical Legacy Of Whitney Houston” is a current GRAMMY Museum® exhibit that explores the extraordinary life and career of the six-time GRAMMY winner and provides an in-depth look at all aspects of Houston’s creative life. Presented in conjunction with the Houston family, the collection features diverse artifacts as well as rare photographs and footage, and includes dozens of items from the private collection of the Houston family. “Whitney!” will be on display in the GRAMMY Museum’s Special Exhibits Gallery through February 2013.

Houston was one of the biggest pop stars — male or female — of all time, selling more than 170 million combined albums, songs and videos, and garnering six GRAMMYs and two Emmy®s, as well as countless other awards and accolades. She graced the GRAMMY stage eight times over the years — one of a few artists who has had the distinction of performing the most times on the annual telecast. Most recently, she appeared as a presenter at the 51st Annual GRAMMY Awards in 2009 (ultimately presenting Jennifer Hudson with her first GRAMMY, for Best R&B Album).

“We Will Always Love You: A GRAMMY Salute To Whitney Houston” is produced by AEG Ehrlich Ventures, LLC. Ken Ehrlich is the executive producer. Louis J. Horvitz is director. Clive Davis, Tom Corson, and Kevin Beisler are producers.
