When Whitney Houston died suddenly in February, near-immediate tributes sprung up everywhere from that weekend’s Grammy telecast and EW’s own print cover.
But some tributes, of course, can’t be wrought so quickly, and this coming November will bring a number of longer-gestating odes to the fallen superstar. On November 16, CBS will broadcast We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute To Whitney Houston, an hour-long primetime special that genuflects to Houston’s music with the aid of stars like Jennifer Hudson and Usher (with more to be announced).

Also included: a new version of “I Look to You” featuring R. Kelly. Check it out below. READ FULL STORY
