She was born into severe poverty, but that didn’t stop her pursuing her dream. With her talent and will to succeed, she carved a name and place for herself in the music industry! She has performed to many hits by this time, but there is one song that really stands out from the rest.
You might be familiar to the song “I Will Always Love You”. It is a classic, and is instantly recognizable. It was popularized by Whitney Houston when released a cover of it back in 1992. But not many might know that the song was originally written by Dolly Parton in 1973! She wrote the song herself back then and performed it herself. It was originally dedicated to her long-time partner when they parted ways, and it is really emotional as well.
