NEW YORK — Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson and Usher will pay tribute to the late Whitney Houston in a one-hour TV special. 

"We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston" will tape Oct. 11. It will air Nov. 16 on CBS.

The Recording Academy announced Thursday that the special will include Houston's "most memorable performances" and interviews with various artists. More performers will be announced.

Houston died at age 48 in February. Authorities called her death an accidental drowning, complicated by heart disease and cocaine use.

The compilation album, "I Will Always Love You - The Best of Whitney Houston," will be released on Nov. 13.
