When this song was chosen for the 1992 film The Bodyguard
, it proved to be a huge benefit for both Parton and Whitney Houston. It helped revive Houston's career (which struggled somewhat beforehand) and as Houston's version
became a worldwide success in pop music, both artists have managed to receive a huge amount of royalties from it. While Parton's version was a country ballad, Houston's version attracted audiences of pop, soul, and adult contemporary. Houston's version managed to be a #1 pop hit in a variety of countries, including the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Japan, and Netherlands.
