The Grammy organised tribute to Whitney Houston aired on US channel CBS, and thanks to the magic of Youtube the performances have hit the internet. The tribute I was most excited about hearing was that made by fellow member of the vocal trinity: Celine Dion.
Celine Dion started her tribute with some touching words about the fallen Diva and an a cappella rendition of Saving All My Love For You. It was followed by the main attraction, Whitney Houston's classic, Greatest Love Of All. Though the performance showed how Celine's voice has lost some of its gusto with age; the smoother, softer tone that can be heard on the top notes here is actually something I quite like.
The video has generated accusations about the performance itself being lipped, but I'm not getting into all of that. This was one great vocalist paying tribute to another, and I thought it was stunning.
