Ashanti performs Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” on Good Morning America [Video]

Former Murder Inc songstress Ashanti pays tribute to the late Whitney Houston, with a performance on US television show Good Morning America.

Having begun her career in the spotlight with her 2002 debut, multi-platinum selling album Ashanti and currently in the midst of a comeback with new single “The Woman You Love,” Ashanti has always been inspired by Houston.

“I still can not believe we have lost one of the most, powerful, soulful, soothing and classic voices of our time…” she Twittered. “Her beauty, strength and poise touched millions around the world. She paved they way for women such as myself and her music brought generations together.

“Every little girl sang a Whitney Houston song. Having the honor of her being in my video and being the huge icon that she was, she always seemed like your favorite aunty. My heart goes out to her daughter and family. RIP the Amazing Whitney Houston.”

Ashanti also paid tribute to Houston in late 2011 by performing anthems “I Will Always Love You” and “I Have Nothing” in honour of the icon – watch here.
