We’re celebrating World Diabetes Day ‘diva-style’ with musical inspiration from Whitney Houston in honor of the 25th anniversary of “The Bodyguard” soundtrack album with the release of “Whitney Houston – I Wish You Love: More From ‘The Bodyguard’”. The album brings together a variety of live and studio recordings, many of them rare or previously unreleased.
The album includes previously unreleased live recordings from Houston’s “Bodyguard Tour” of 1993-1995; alternate versions of the audio recordings from the “The Bodyguard” film; and an alternate version of a remix of “I’m Every Woman.” The album will be available on CD and digital configurations as well as a limited edition 2LP 12″ purple vinyl edition, to be released at a later date.
More specifically, rarities include an alternate mix of “I Will Always Love You,” which features a spoken word intro of Whitney as Rachel Marron, a previously unreleased A Capella version of “Jesus Loves Me,” and a live version of the rarely performed “Run To You.” Also included are film and live versions of “I Will Always Love” You,” “I Have Nothing,” “Queen of The Night” and more.
The Bodyguard Original Soundtrack Album set a record for the most albums sold in a single week since the Nielsen SoundScan introduced a computerized sales monitoring system in May 1991, with sales of 1,061,000 copies during Christmas week of 1992, becoming the first album sold over 1 million in one week.
In November 1999, Houston and The Bodyguard Soundtrack, were named the “Top-selling R&B Female Artist of the Century” and “Top-selling Soundtrack Album of the Century” by the RIAA, respectively.
