Watch : Jennifer Hudson’s Stunning Tribute To Whitney Houston At The 2012 Grammy Awards

As the world barely recovered from the shock of suddenly losing one of music’s most revered voices, the 2012 Grammy Awards took off on a somber note with artists paying tribute to Whitney Houston throughout the show.

But none could match the show stopping heart-wrenching performance by diva Jennifer Hudson who took to the stage with the legend’s classic ‘I Will Always Love You’,  and completely owned the song. The performance was simple, nothing over-the-top, yet Jennifer’s vocal depth encompassed every bit of the legacy her idol had left behind. Whitney Houston would have been so proud. Watch Jennifer own the stage here :

As a fanatic, it’s still difficult for me to fathom that Whitney Houston is no more.

R.I.P Whitney Houston.
