November 25, 2022, marks the 30th anniversary of the movie The Bodyguard, starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. The bodyguard Frank Farmer (Kevin Costner), gets assigned a job to protect singer/actress Rachel Marron (Whitney Houston).
Here are musical sequences from the movie that were impressive.
The music has a presence in various scenes of the movie. The first example is when Frank meets Rachel during a rehearsal for a video for the song I Have Nothing. Then later in the film, we hear the tune I’m Every Woman. The most impressive music-related scene is when Rachel performs the piece Queen of the Night at a club then Frank goes to get her when she falls into the audience – crowd surfing.
The touching scene is when Frank and Rachel go to the movies and a bar afterwards. We hear a cover of I Will Always Love You – Country version similar to Dolly Parton’s original hit.
The concert sequence in Miami, where Rachel performs I Have Nothing was fantastic. The sound was impressive.
The most touching moment was when Rachel and her sister Nicki sang together Jesus Loves Me – a lovely bonding moment between sisters. Then the song plays during the post-funeral sequence.
The sequence during the Academy Awards was entertaining, including hearing Queen of the Night performed by Nita Whitaker.
Whitney Houston’s famous single I Will Always Love You is the last song heard in the movie before the credits come. It represents the love story of The Bodyguard perfectly. It’s a bittersweet sequence, full of emotions.
After the credits, there’s a replay of Queen of the Night, representing the personality of Whitney Houston’s character Rachel.
The film’s music was incredible, especially Whitney Houston’s songs.
Happy 30th Anniversary to The Bodyguard!
