"The Greatest Love of All," Whitney Houston

Although originally sung by George Benson, once Whitney Houston recorded this track, she owned the song hook, line and legacy, as she did with Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You." Anchored by the late legend's soaring vocals, Houston transformed a quiet and gentle ditty into an inspiring power ballad. Whitney's rendition is the standard by which all aspiring singers test their skills, because, as heard here, no one does it better.
