James Blunt pens musical tribute to Whitney Houston

Apparently, he will always love you, Whitney Houston.

British singer songwriter James Blunt just released on online video to “Miss America,” an ode to the late singer Houston who was found in February 2012 submerged in a bathtub at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

“But no good-byes, you’ll always be Miss America,” Blunt sings in the somber chorus. “We watched you fly, but nothing’s free Miss America.”

The coroner’s report listed the cause of her death as “drowning due to atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use.”

Houston would have turned 50 on August 9. “Miss America” is a single off Blunt’s upcoming album “Moon Landing,” his fourth studio album which will be on sale in October.
