‘Glee’ Planning Whitney Houston Tribute
According to reports, ‘Glee’ will be working on an episode that celebrates the music of Whitney Houston. The FOX show is planning to film an episode containing eight of her most popular songs. Ace Showbiz hints that the episode will center around McKinley High School’s graduation. The students will be having a hard time saying goodbye to each other.
Lea Michele has been dropping hints on the possible tribute to Houston. FOX has yet to make an official announcement, but that didn’t stop her from tweeting, “Singing a really great rendition of one of my favorite songs today with @MsAmberPRiley @NayaRivera and @chriscolfer .”
This is not the first time that ‘Glee’ has done one of Houston’s songs. Amber Riley sang, “I Will Always Love You” in the Valentine’s Day episode. It is unknown if that track will get a reprisal in the Houston tribute episode, but it would be fitting. This will be the second time that ‘Glee’ has done a posthumous tribute to an artist. In 2009, they did an episode paying tribute to Michael Jackson.
