The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is Songs that reference another group.

~~~~~~~~~~

I’m Every Woman was the 1978 debut hit for Chaka Khan after she left the funk group, Rufus.

Whitney Houston’s 1992 cover of the song for The Bodyguard soundtrack not only mentions Chaka near the end, but she’s also featured in the official video.

FUN FACTS:

  • The music video features a very pregnant Houston performing the song, while scenes from The Bodyguard are intercut into the clip. The video also features cameo appearances by Houston’s mother Cissy Houston as well as by Chaka Khan, Valerie Simpson, Martha Wash and labelmate TLC. The song won Houston a NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Music Video, and received a Grammy Award nomination in 1994 for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.
  • When I’m Every Woman was released, Houston’s preceding single, I Will Always Love You, was still at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 (it remained there for eight more weeks).
  • Chaka’s version reached number twenty-one on the Billboard Hot 100, number one on the Hot Soul Singles,
  • Houston’s version peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 in just its seventh and eighth week of release; remaining in the top 40 for nineteen weeks. The song became number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, reached number five on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, and cracked the top 40 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart.

It’s a fun, energetic video!

Enjoy!
