"I Will Always Love You" was more than just a block buster hit for Whitney Houston, it was also an iconic song and experience for H Music's Bashiri Johnson as well. Bashiri contributed his breathtaking percussions and received a platinum record award for his work on "I Will Always Love You" and The Bodyguard Soundtrack in 1992 (see photo above).
The news of Ms. Houston was earth shattering to Bashiri who had known and worked with her for over 20 years. Bashiri says his fondest memories of Whitney Houston remain around the recordings in Miami for the Bodyguard soundtrack and film. The film was followed by a world tour which was one of many Bashiri travelled with Ms. Houston as well.
