Dolly Parton Updated Whitney Houston Statement

Dolly Parton, who penned Whitney Houston’s biggest hit, “I will always love you,” has spoken about Houston’s passing due to a reported alleged drug and alcohol overdose.

From Parton’s publicists, her Whitney Houston statement:

“I was brought to tears again last night, as I’m sure many were, when Jennifer Hudson sang ‘I Will Always Love You’ on the Grammys in memory of Whitney.  Like everybody else, I am still in shock.  But I know that Whitney will live forever in all the great music that she left behind.  I will always have a very special piece of her in the song we shared together and had the good fortune to share with the world.  Rest in peace, Whitney.  Again, we will always love you.”
