Whitney Houston, who passed away yesterday at the age of 48, was best known for her amazing voice, but that vocal talent also led Houston to the silver screen. From her breakout debut performance in The Bodyguard, to her as yet to be released remake of Sparkle, her films totaled only five spanning from 1992-2012. Let’s take a look at the films and roles that brought Whitney to the movies.
The Bodyguard (1992)
It was a huge film debut for Whitney, pairing her with one of the biggest stars of the time, Kevin Costner. The film eventually pulled in a whopping $410,900,000 worldwide. It also gave us one of the songs that would forever be associated with her, a cover of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dolly Parton[/lastfm]’s I Will Always Love You.
