ABC and dick clark productions announced today (Oct. 30) that Christina Aguilera will perform a 25th anniversary tribute to Whitney Houston and her iconic work as an actress and singer in romantic thriller The Bodyguard (released Nov. 25, 1992) at the 2017 American Music Awards on Nov. 19. Aguilera's tribute will include songs from the movie's Diamond-certified (and primarily Houston-performed) soundtrack.
“Whitney herself stated in 2001 that Christina Aguilera sang the best version of her song ‘Run to You,’” Houston's estate offered in a press release. “It is with great appreciation and honor that she is returning to participate on the American Music Awards for a special tribute honoring the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard. Whitney said that Christina is without a doubt one of the best voices she enjoyed in this generation of music."
