Various Artists — Soundtrack: The Bodyguard (1992)

Pop star-turned-actress Whitney Houston contributes six songs to this soundtrack to her feature film debut “The Bodyguard.” As usual, Houston’s lovely voice surpasses her material.

Her reading of the Dolly Parton-penned “I Will Always Love You” is powerful, but elsewhere she cops the moves of Chaka Khan and En Vogue. Kenny G, Lisa Stansfield and Joe Cocker are among those also represented.
