Amber Riley’s rousing rendition of Whitney’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ came only days after the legendary singer’s death. ‘Glee’ is now planning to honor the singer and her impressive catalog in a full-episode dedicated to her music.

Glee is shooting a full-episode tribute to the late-great Whitney Houston, singing eight songs from her catalog, a source confirmed to E! Online. “Starting a new episode today. A very special tribute to one of the worlds most amazing singers. Very excited about this one,” Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry, tweeted on March 8.

Amber Riley gave a remarkable performance of Whitney’s classic hit “I Will Always Love You” on the Fox hit’s Feb. 14 episode, which was filmed before the diva’s tragic death at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Feb. 11.

Glee’s graduating seniors will use Whitney’s music to express their hesitations about letting go and moving on from the halls of McKinley High School.

“It’s using Whitney’s music as a way to say goodbye,” the source reveals. “A way to respectfully say thank you for her music.”

Glee has given tribute previously to Madonna and Michael Jackson. Not everyone has been a fan of the episodes dedicated to one artist, but this seems only fitting. What a great way to give a final send-off to Whitney’s memory and all the wonderful music she gave us.

Do YOU think a Whitney-tribute episode is necessary or was Amber’s unplanned tribute performance perfect enough?

Stop idolizing Whitney houston. Whitney is dead and in hell. Worship Jesus christ, our lord and saviour. Whitney was an ignorant sinner suffering in hell now for her sins. Whitney was an agent of satan to the world. Jesus is the true lord. Come to Jesus christ for the salvation of your soul. Stop partying, smoking and drinking. You are going to hell if you are not a born again child of God. Accept Jesus christ as lord and personal saviour.

Whitney was a whore. Whitney is in hell. Come out of whoredom. Come to Jesus. Abandon drugs and alcohol. Do not join Whitney in hell. Accept Jesus christ as lord and saviour. Repent from your sins. Do not follow the sinful footsteps of Whitney houston. Whitney embarassed christianity. Whitney was a child of the devil.

I loved the 1 singer homages on Glee. However, what I would REALLY REALLY LOVE to see, are en entire episode paying tribute to BARBRA STREISAND (I can already envision the fun an episode with Barb making an apperance, Rachel’s reactions would be hysterical) and an episode dedicated to Elton John. Anyone else on board with me on that! FUN FUN FUN!
