Earlier this month, fans, friends and fellow musicians celebrated Whitney Houston. Now you can own it on DVD.

On December 18, fans will be able to get their hands on We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute To Whitney Houston.

The one-hour special, which aired November 13 on CBS, features Usher singing “I Believe in You And Me” from The Preacher’s Wife, an 80’s inspired medley from Jennifer Hudson featuring Whitney classics like “I’m Every Woman,” “How Will I Know” and “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” along with Celine Dion’s version of “Greatest Love of All.”

“I can’t sing it like you, Whitney,” Dion said before she sang the late singer’s hit song.

The show also featured appearances from actress Halle Berry, LL Cool J and Britney Spears, who admitted she sang Whitney’s “I Have Nothing” to land her first record deal.

The special showcased highlights of Houston’s career including her first ever TV appearance on The Merv Griffin Show in the early 80s, along with rare footage and photographs of the singer.

We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute To Whitney Houston comes out December 18.
