"I Will Always Love You – The Best of Whitney Houston" compilation album will be released on November 13.

Whitney died on the afternoon of the annual Clive Davis pre-Grammy party in a Beverly Hills hotel at the age of 48 with cause of death blamed on accidental drowning which was complicated by her heart disease and years of cocaine use.

She sold over 170 million recordings and videos and won six Grammys and two Emmys in her lifetime.

We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston will air on CB on November 16.
