Marking the 25th anniversary of “The Bodyguard”, Christina Aguilera will perform a medley of Whitney Houston’s hits at the American Music Awards next month.
Aguilera will perform songs from the film’s soundtrack, which included one of Houston’s signature numbers, a cover of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.”
Aguilera says in a statement that Houston was a personal idol and says her kindness to her as she was coming up in the business “will forever be cherished.” Houston’s estate says the singer thought Aguilera was “one of the best voices she enjoyed in this generation of music.” Houston died at the age of 48 in 2012.
The AMAs will be handed out live on ABC on Nov. 19.
