LeAnn Rimes couldn’t hold back the tears when she took the stage to pay tribute to one of the biggest music legends of all time. Whitney Houston had one of the most amazing voices in music history, crossing genres and collecting fans from all corners of the world.
Similar to Houston, Rimes got her start at a very young age. At just 13 years old she burst into the country music scene with the classic, “Blue” and the rest is history. Compared to Patsy Cline, and winning countless awards throughout her career – Rimes has had more opportunity than most can dream of.
In this particular performance, we see an emotional Rimes during a performance she has dedicated to Houston who had passed away earlier that year. Fighting back the tears she sings “I Have Nothing” and “I Will Always Love You” to an extremely supportive crowd.
