"I Will Always Love You" was written and originally recorded in 1973 by American singer / songwriter legend Dolly Parton. Written as a farewell to her business partner and mentor Porter Wagoner, expressing Parton's decision to pursue a solo career. In 1992, Whitney Houston recorded a new arrangement of the song for the soundtrack to the blockbuster "Bodyguard", her film debut. It was her co-star Kevin Costner who suggested "I Will Always Love You". Producer David Foster and Whitney re-arranged the song as a soul ballad. Her record company did not feel a song with an a-cappella introduction would be as successful; however, Houston and Costner insisted on retaining it. Perfect! The song became one of the biggest hits in history with a total of 16,547,000 points. "I Will Always Love You" topped the hitlists in almost all countries around the world and also the 1993 year-end list.
