On this day in 1993, Whitney Houston released ‘I’m Every Woman’ as her second single from the iconic soundtrack for ‘The Bodyguard’.
It was originally recorded by Chaka Khan in 1978, who made an appearance in Whitney’s music video for the song. The two divas performed it as a duet as part of VH1’s ‘Divas Live’ special in 1999.
While ‘I’m Every Woman’ peaked at #4 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for 2 weeks, Whitney’s previous single ‘I Will Always Love You’ was spending its 13th and 14th weeks at #1.
The music video, in which Whitney was pregnant with her daughter Bobbi Kristina, earned an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Music Video.
