Country icon Dolly Parton recently said in an interview, with Fox411, that hearing “I Will Always Love You” played at Whitney Houston’s funeral broke her heart. The song, made famous by the late singer and actress, was written by Parton. “The fact that they used it at her funeral just killed me. That’s when I really lost it,” Parton said. Fox News reports on the story:
Country superstar Dolly Parton released the double CD “An Evening With Dolly” this week, a record made from two live performances she did in London in July, 2008.
Fox411 Country has the exclusive video of Parton singing “I Will Always Love You,” the song made famous worldwide by Whitney Houston. It also became the last song played at Houston’s funeral after she died earlier this year.
“That song will always be precious to me for many reasons. Whitney’s passing made it far more emotional that it ever would be otherwise,” Parton told Fox411 Country.
