The late 'I Will Always Love You' singer's tracks are set to be covered by the famous US show's cast.

Whitney Houston will apparently join the likes of Madonna and Michael Jackson by having an entire episode of Fox US TV show Glee dedicated to her music.

The 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' singer's biggest hits will be covered by the show's cast who have begun filming for the show according to E! Online.

A source told the website: " It's using Whitney's music as a way to say goodbye. A way to respectfully say thank you for her music."

Star of the show Lea Michelle took to her Twitter account yesterday (8th March) to tease plans for the show.

She tweeted: "Starting a new episode today. A very special tribute to one of the worlds most amazing singers. Very excited about this one.."

Whitney passed away last month shortly before the Grammy Awards 2012 and her funeral featured musical tributes by Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys.

Meanwhile, The Wanted were also featured in a recent episode of Glee after their track 'Glad You Came' was covered by the show's cast.
