Originally released on November 17, 1992, The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album-co-executive produced by Whitney Houston and Clive Davis-was the first album verified by SoundScan to sell more than one million copies in a single week, won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year, has sold more than 45 million copies worldwide (and is certified 17-times Platinum in the U.S. by the RIAA) and is the top-selling soundtrack album of all-time.

In addition, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and the Fontainebleau Miami Beach are respectively announcing a series of special projects and events.

Whitney Houston's estate is cooperating with Sony's Legacy Recordings for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard's soundtrack album with the release of Whitney Houston - I Wish You Love: More From 'The Bodyguard. It includes an alternate mix of the hit single from the film, "I Will Always Love You" (a cover of the Dolly Parton song), as well as live performances from Houston's 1993-'95 The Bodyguard tour, including a version of the song "Run to You" that she rarely performed.

Released on November 17, 1992, The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album spent 20 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 1992-93.

The collection will be released exactly 25 years after the release of "The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album", which the "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" singer co-executive produced with Clive Davis. Moreover, there will be a remix to "I Will Always Love You", which features a spoken word intro of Whitney as Rachel Marron, an A Capella version of "Jesus Loves Me", and a live version of "Run To You".

Available digitally and on CD, Whitney Houston - I Wish You Love: More From The Bodyguard can be pre-ordered here. The anniversary edition comes with previously released special features for select digital retailers. The film also will be available on DVD and Blu-ray.

The Fontainebleau Miami Beach, which doubled as a backdrop for key scenes in The Bodyguard, will celebrate the silver anniversary with an invite-only listening party/movie screening on November 4 as well as special activations throughout the resort. Fans have the opportunity to RSVP for the listening party and movie screening starting on Friday, through Houston's website.
