Christina Aguilera has been added to next month’s American Music Awards, where she’ll help celebrate the 25th anniversary of Whitney Houston’s iconic work in the movie, and on the soundtrack to “The Bodyguard.”
"I am honored and humbled to be asked to participate in such a special tribute of a timeless soundtrack that has been a huge inspiration not only in my own personal life and career, but to countless aspiring singers -- touching music lovers worldwide and influencing the history of music itself,” Christina says. "To be honoring the one and only, Whitney Houston, is a blessing and I am grateful to celebrate the spirit of her songs and legend that lives on.”
Meanwhile, Whitney’s estate shares in a press release, “Whitney herself stated in 2001 that Christina Aguilera sang the best version of her song ‘Run to You,’” adding, “Whitney said that Christina is without a doubt one of the best voices she enjoyed in this generation of music."
The 2017 American Music Awards air November 19th on ABC.
