At Whitney Houston’s funeral on February 18, 2012, Kevin Costner, her costar from the 1992 blockbuster, ‘The Bodyguard’, paid his last respects in a moving tribute.
“Whitney, if you could hear me now, I would tell you, you weren’t just good enough, you were great. You sang the whole damn song without a band. You made the picture what it was. A lot of leading men could’ve played my part … but you, Whitney, I truly believe you were the only one who could’ve played Rachel Marron at that time. You weren’t just pretty, you were as beautiful as a woman could be. And people didn’t just like you Whitney, they loved you.”
“To you, Bobbi Kristina, and to all those young girls who are dreaming that dream, thinking that maybe they aren’t good enough, I think Whitney would tell you, guard your bodies, and guard the precious miracle of your own life. Then sing your hearts out. ”
“Off you go Whitney, off you go, escorted by an army of angels to your heavenly father. When you sing before him, don’t you worry. You’ll be good enough.”
