Riley will be singing Houston’s classic hit “I Will Always Love You,” and is really excited to pay homage to the legendary vocalist.

“[Creator] Ryan Murphy had been trying to push me to sing it for such a long time and it’s such a song that’s close to my heart and it’s very challenging, vocally, and he said he wanted it in this Valentine’s Day episode and I went for it and it’s very befitting that we’re doing it this Tuesday. We were celebrating her in life when we recorded it and now that she’s died, we’re celebrating her passing and her legacy,” Riley exclaimed.

Tuesday’s episode is sure to be a must see.
