This cover speaks for itself … I just became a Josh Weathers fan … thanks go to theCHIVE.com …
Josh Weathers at the historic Kessler Theater in Dallas, TX.
From one of the comments in response to one of the people who just had to point out that the song was originally written by Dolly Parton:
The opening of the video has been omitted. In it, he explains that his mom had a '92 Lumina and played a tape of the soundtrack to 'The Bodyguard' in it until the car died. It was her birthday when this was recorded, and he dedicated the song to her. Technically, it was a cover of Whitney Houston's version.
The world would be a better place with more talent like this …
And now a note for anyone trying to embed the Kaltura player used by theCHIVE
It is difficult to find any useful documentation on how to disable auto play, which is horrifically defaulted to ON. Well, after a half hour of spelunking their documentation (not all that impressed I must say) I did find the secret … in the embed code itself, you will find a statement
<param name=”flashVars” value = “”/>
which you will change to:
<param name="flashVars" value="autoPlay=false"/>
