Most of us remember the notable song, “I Will Always Love You” from when Whitney Houston belted it out at the end of the film “The Bodyguard.” But the song’s origin started long before that…
In fact, our beloved Dolly Parton wrote it years before and sang it in a lesser-known film, “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”. She wrote it for her one-time partner and mentor Porter Wagoner, from whom she was professionally splitting from at the time.
Maybe it’s the vulnerability with which Dolly wrote or maybe it’s the melody line, but somehow the song has touched the hearts of so many, which is why it’s still one of the most beloved tunes of all time. So when we heard how this little boy covered the famous song, we were skeptical. But seconds after hearing him — we were BLOWN away. You have to hear this!
Can you believe that little boy is only 4 years old?! AMAZING! I bet both Dolly and Whitney—in Heaven are so proud!
