THE BODYGUARD EXTENDS LEGACY WITH 25TH ANNIVERSARY UPDATE
11/6/17

In honor of the 25th Anniversary of The Bodyguard —the iconic movie and soundtrack, which became the first album to sell more than a million copies in a single week, won the Grammy for Album of the Year and has since sold upwards of 45m copies—will be celebrated with an exclusive new re-release.

Whitney Houston- I Wish You Love: More From The Bodyguard will drop on 11/17- exactly 25 years after its original release on 11/17/1992.

Coming via Legacy Recordings (in cooperation with The Estate of Whitney E. Houston), the album features 14 tracks, with highlights including new versions of songs like “I Will Always Love You” and “I’m Every Woman,” two covers that Houston turned into massive global hits.  It’s poised to be an essential new Whitney collection, armed with never-before-released live recordings from Houston’s The Bodyguard Tour (1993-1995), such as her stirring A Capella version of “Jesus Loves Me.”

Also celebrating the occasion was Fontainebleau Miami Beach, which served as a major location backdrop in the film. The hotel hosted a VIP Listening Party on 11/4,  where Legacy Recordings presented the Estate with a new official 18X Platinum RIAA certification for The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album and 3X Platinum Digital Single RIAA certification for Whitney’s historic interpretation of “I Will Always Love You.”

From L-R: Tara Bruh, VP of Business & Legal Affairs, CMG; Will McKinney, Marketing Manager, Legacy Recordings; Gary Michael Houston, nephew of Whitney; Donna Houston, The Estate Of Whitney E. Houston; Rayah Houston, niece of Whitney; Pat Houston, The Estate Of Whitney E. Houston; Sheldra Khahaifa, SVP, Finance & CFO, CMG; Gretchen Brennison, Director of Content Development, Legacy Recordings; Jeff James, Director of A&R, Legacy Recordings and host Rickey Minor, Whitney’s longtime Music Director.)
