Whitney Houston’s powerful voice has been a source of inspiration to many of us, singers and non-singers (ahem) alike, so it’s likely that many young female artists would also cite her as a role model. Keri Hilson took on the challenge of performing one of Houston’s legendary tracks, “I Have Nothing” from 1993′s The Bodyguard, during a tribute to songwriter David Foster at the BMI Pop Music Awards on Tuesday.
