Viola Davis took the stage to present Whitney Houston’s tribute for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard. It was the best-selling movie soundtrack of all-time, Davis stated as well. In the crowd, were some of Houston’s relatives, waiting to hear Christina Aguilera’s performance in honor of the event. Beginning the medley, Aguilera started off by singing “I Will Always Love You.” Dressed in black, Aguilera delivered a passionate and stunning performance. After “I Will Always Love You”, a curtain lifted to show footage from The Bodyguard as Aguilera transitioned into the song “I Have Nothing.”
Soon, Aguilera began to sing Houston’s song “Run to You.” Years ago, when Houston was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the BET Awards in 2001, Aguilera also took the stage to deliver the same song in honor of the occasion. Houston gave her approval of Aguilera’s performance during her acceptance speech that night.
