Not yet rated | write a review

Whitney Houston’s soaring version of Dolly Parton’s "I Will Always Love You" kept the soundtrack to The Bodyguard nailed firmly to the top of the charts. However, the premier soul diva also uses the record to show that she can tackle more than just ballads with stirring gospel rousers like "Jesus Loves Me" and the rich Southern funk of "Queen of the Night." Additional tunes from Aaron Neville and Joe Cocker with Sass Jordan only further solidify this already impressive release.

THE BODYGUARD won the 1994 Grammy Award for "Record Of The Year." "I Will Always Love You" won 1994 Grammys for "Record Of The Year" and "Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female." "I'm Every Woman" was nominated for a 1994 Grammy Award for "Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female." One of the highlights of THE BODYGUARD soundtrack is how the film's female lead, Whitney Houston, brings her gospel roots front and center on the half dozen tracks which feature her soaring vocals. These churchy musical overtones are apparent throughout "Jesus Loves Me!" and on her unaccompanied intro to the hit "I Will Always Love You" (penned by country diva Dolly Parton), and in case you didn't get the message, Kirk Whalum's sanctified saxophone break adds an exclamatory Amen. Elsewhere Houston continues to mine her rich vein of ornate balladry and pop-flavored dance workouts on the Ashford & Simpson original "I'm Every Woman" and on her own "Queen Of The Night," with its percolating upbeat production a la L.A. Reid & Babyface. But for fans of romantic pop there's more than Whitney Houston to recommend THE BODYGUARD: The quavering falsetto and rich tenor of the great vocal stylist Aaron Neville find a perfect compliment in Kenny G's soulful alto breaks on "Even If My Heart Would Break;" Curtis Stigers offers a taste of Stax/Volt soul on his version of Nick Lowe's "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding," and Joe Cocker teams with Sass Jordan on the rocking love song "Trust In Me."
