Celebrity Whitney Houston Covers: Stars Remember Legend In Her Own Words

There is no doubt that Whitney Houston's music will live on far beyond her short 48 years, and the proof is already in the making. Before Houston's death, her emotional ballads were the DNA of what aspiring singers hoped to do justice.

Stars like Jessie J, Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson covered Houston's hits before her untimely death and their admiration for the vocal great has become a testament to her iconic industry status.

But for those who have been brave enough to touch Houston's soulful lyrics following her death, the stakes are even higher. Jennifer Hudson delivered a pitch perfect tribute to her idol at the 2012 Grammy Awards, with her rendition of the iconic love song, "I Will Always Love You." Even country crooner LeAnn Rimes and rocker Chris Cornell paid homage to the legend by singing her praises.

Watch all of these celebrity tributes to Houston below:
