Fox’s telecast of "Glee" tomorrow night, the Valentine’s Day episode, will include a tribute to Whitney Houston, E! Online reports.
The episode was taped before Houston’s death, but by coincidence the episode already included a rendition of Houston’s big hit, the Dolly Parton composition "I Will Always Love You," sung by Amber Riley’s character, Mercedes.
In addition the episode will include a dedication to Houston.
Riley said she met Houston for the first time just last Thursday in Los Angeles and was very moved by the encounter. Riley told E! reporter Marc Malkin, "I didn’t need her to take a picture with me. I didn’t need an autograph. The fact that she even acknowledged that I was standing there was enough for me.”
In the episode, Mercedes sings the song for Sam (Chord Overstreet).
