Tuesday night’s episode of “Glee” featured homages to Whitney Houston that were both intended and unintended.  After the pop icon died over the weekend, producers of the Fox show added a last-minute card to the end credits that read “We Will Always Love You” along with Whitney’s name and the dates of her birth and death.  But the Valentine’s Day episode was also dedicated to the “world’s greatest love songs,” and coincidentally Amber Riley’s character Mercedes Jones chose to take on Whitney’s classic version of “I Will Always Love You.”  Some of the other romantic tracks the McKinley High glee club performed included Nat King Cole’s “L-O-V-E,” Gym Class Heroes’ “Stereo Hearts,” and the B-52’s “Love Shack.”

Whitney Houston was found dead in a Beverly Hills hotel room on Saturday, February 11th.  An official cause of death for the 48-year-old singer has not been announced yet, as officials are still awaiting the toxicology reports.  Meanwhile, a private funeral for Houston is scheduled to be held at the New Hope Baptist Church in her hometown of Newark, New Jersey, this coming Saturday, February 18th.  Earlier reports suggested their would also be a public viewing at the Prudential Center arena, but a rep for Newark Mayor Cory Booker tells TMZ.com the Houston family has specifically asked the city not to plan any memorial event for Whitney.
