Chris Cornell pays homage to Whitney Houston
The Soundgarden singer gave his own rendition of the song Dolly Parton originally sang in 1974, at a fundraiser for Barack Obama’s presidential election campaign in San Francisco on Thursday, February 16th. Along with this cover, Cornell also played his version of songs by John Lennon (“Imagine”), Bob Marley (“Redemption Song”), and Elvis Costello (“Peace, Love And Understanding”).
When Houston sang “I Will Always Love You” for The Bodyguard soundtrack back in 1992, she seemed to reinvent the already famous song by making it her own, and brought it to a whole other level of popularity.
Cornell plays the song in a beautiful, acoustic set. Go ahead and listen to his version below!
