A stage musical based on the 1992 movie hit ‘The Bodyguard’ starring the late Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner has opened at London’s Adelphi Theatre with praise for its big-voiced star.

Reviewers raved Thursday about Heather Headley’s performance as Rachel Marron, a superstar singer who falls for the former secret service agent (Lloyd Owen) assigned to protect her from a stalker.

Critic Mark Shenton in The Stage newspaper found Headley — an American actor and singer who has won both a Tony and a Grammy Award — “an utterly compelling star” who combines “an authentic glamour and blazingly soulful vocals.”

Although the overall musical received jaded reviews, one critic said that Headley’s renditions of “I Will Always Love You” was even better than Whitney Houston, who died in February aged 48.

The accolades Heather has received doesn’t surprise me.

The power and range that her voice carries is mesmerizing!

Her “In My Mind” is one of my favorite songs.

I’d love to see ‘The Bodyguard’ make it state-side on Broadway!
