Amazing Cover: "A Song For You" (Whitney Houston)

With the release of Whitney Houston's live album a few weeks ago, I have been jamming out to Jersey's own for the last few weeks and wanted to revisit Whitney's sublime cover of this classic hit once again.

Though Leon Russell originated the song and Donny Hathaway in my book has the definitive version of "A Song For You," it's Whitney Houston's live cover of the song that really gets at the core of the song for me.

Lifted from her HBO Welcome Home Heroes special back in 1991, Houston lets into the song like no one else can and shows off why in her prime she was known as simply The Voice. Watch her phenomenal performance below and Enjoy!
