I Will Always Love You

Comments Off on I Will Always Love You

I don’t know about you, but when I hear the words ‘I will always love you,’ I automatically think of the Dolly Parton song, made famous by the legendary Whitney Houston. Unfortunately for Houston, drug addiction rode on the coattails of her success and after years of rehab and rehabilitation, her life was tragically cut short on February 11th, 2012.

Many artists were affected by her sudden death, and paid tribute in the best way they knew how. Cue Chris Cornell, the ex-lead singer of Audioslave/current lead singer of the ever popular band Soundgarden.  At an acoustic gig in San Francisco, Cornell stunned the crowd with a powerful acoustic rendition of ‘I Will Always Love You.’ This cover sent chills down my spine. His voice evokes such emotion, and does the song all the justice it deserves.

Here’s a link to the performance for your viewing pleasure. Do you agree with my opinion? Disagree? I want to know!
