This year marks the 25th anniversary of Whitney Houston’s smash movie The Bodyguard and its blockbuster soundtrack. In honor of the milestone, a new collection of Whitney recordings is on its way.
Whitney Houston — I Wish You Love: More from The Bodyguard arrives November 17, 25 years to the day after the release of the original movie soundtrack, which has sold more than 45 million copies worldwide. The new package is a collection of live and studio recordings, many of which are previously unreleased or unavailable.
Among the gems on the collection: live recordings from Whitney’s The Bodyguard Tour of 1993-1995, an alternate remix of “I’m Every Woman,” an alternate mix of “I Will Always Love You” that includes a spoken-word intro from Whitney as her character Rachel Marron, and an a cappella version of “Jesus Loves Me.”
The package will be released in CD and digital configurations and, at a later date, as a two- LP purple vinyl set.
The Fontainebleau Miami Beach is also getting in on the act, because the hotel served as the backdrop for much of the movie. Whitney, as Rachel, performed two of the movie’s songs — “I Have Nothing” and “I Will Always Love You” — in the Fontainebleau’s ballroom. November 4, the hotel will host a listening party and movie screening. You can RSVP for the event at Whitney’s website starting Friday.
