David Foster: 'Bodyguard' Anthem, 'I Will Always Love You,' Almost Didn't Happen


In more than three decades of producing, Foster has collaborated with other iconic female artists, including Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion, Diana Ross and Natalie Cole, but Houston, he said, was a music "genius" in her own right. Their last collaboration together was on Houston's 2009 single, "I Didn't Know My Own Strength" -- her last hit released before her death.

"Celine would give me exactly what I asked for, which just thrilled me, as an egotistical record producer. Thank you, Celine," Foster said. "When I would ask Whitney to do that, she would give me something different than I asked for. And 99 percent of the time, it would be something better than what I asked for... that was the genius, part of the genius, of Whitney Houston."
