* CoverVersion: Her famous songs "I'm Every Woman", "I Will Always Love You" and "The Greatest Love of All" are covers of songs by Chaka Khan (to whom she gives a shout-out during the song's FadeOut), DollyParton and George Benson, respectively.

* LyricalDissonance: Both her version and DollyParton's of "I Will Always Love You" is not a silly love song or a I'm happy I found you song, it's a sad lost, break up song, yet try telling that to the many people who make it their wedding/relationship song.

* CultSoundtrack: She is involved in two. ''The Bodyguard'' soundtrack is possibly the MostTriumphantExample of this trope; it's one of the bestselling albums of all time, in no small part due to her cover of "I Will Always Love You" as well as "I Have Nothing" and "I'm Every Woman". ''The Preacher's Wife'' soundtrack is also this, being ''the'' bestselling GospelMusic album of all time.

In the early 1990s, she branched out into acting, starring in the acclaimed film ''TheBodyguard'' (1992) alongside Creator/KevinCostner. The movie's original soundtrack won the 1994 Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Its lead single, "I Will Always Love You" (yes, that one, written by Music/DollyParton) became pop music's best-selling single by a female vocalist.

Married to troubled [=R&B=] singer BobbyBrown from 1992-2006, [[DrugsAreBad drug use]] and alcohol use took its toll on Houston's voice, career as a whole and health. She attempted a few comebacks in the 2000s, but she continued to be the subject of many tabloid stories suggesting drug binges and other escapades. She died February 11, 2012, drowning in her bathtub due to heart disease and cocaine use. A few years later, Anne Hathaway, Julie Andrews, Garry Marshall and Dawn Soler placed a "In Loving Memory of Whitney Houston: 1963-2012" screen on international prints of ''Film/ThePrincessDiaries'' shown on Disney Channel (UK), BBC One (UK) and Disney Channel (Japan).
