In a complete coincidence, this Tuesday’s episode of Glee features star Amber Riley doing a cover of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.” In light of Houston’s tragic death, the show’s producers have decided to dedicate the episode to the singer and end with a card honoring her memory. EW caught up with Glee‘s music producer Adam Anders at the Grammys and says everyone was stunned at the episode’s relevance. “It’s a really crazy coincidence,” says Anders. “We are shell-shocked. I was talking to Amber last night and she was really in a daze about it. It really flipped her out. She just met her on Thursday. Whitney had a huge impact on her.” (Additional reporting by Carrie Borzillo)
