Following singer Jordan Sparks rendition of Houston's famous ballad "I Will Always Love You," the tearful 19-year-old took to the stage to thank the crowd for the honor.

"I really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all. Not just from when it was good but when it was bad, too. Thank you for showing that much love, because she deserved it... I'm just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman's life. There will be never be another one, ever," Brown said in her speech.

The Bodyguard star died Feb. 11 on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards. Other entertainment legends who were paid tribute this year include "Last Dance" singer Donna Summer, Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch, and Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb.
