The six-time Grammy Award winner passed away on February 11, 2012, from a “drug-related drowning” at the age of 48. In addition to establishing herself as one of the greatest musicians of all time, the “I Will Always Love You” singer also lent her talents to the big and small screen. She appeared in several movies and shows, including Silver Spoons, Waiting to Exhale, The Preacher’s Wife, Cinderella, and Sparkle, making her most memorable acting turn as Rachel Marron in The Bodyguard.

Produced by Entertainment Tonight, Erin Johnson will executive produce the special with co-executive producers Leslie Kawaguchi and Whitney Wallace.
