Keri Hilson paid tribute to Grammy-winning songwriter David Foster at the 2011 BMI Pop Music Awards in Beverly Hills last night. The blonde-haired singer performed a cover of “I Have Nothing,” the 1993 power ballad Foster penned for Whitney Houston off The Bodyguard soundtrack.
“I sang ‘I Have Nothing’ (Whitney Houston) in a tribute to David Foster, 1 of the greatest songwriters EVER!” tweeted Miss Keri. “He came over & said, ‘Your performance was BAD-ASS!!’ Told you he was genius, heh.”
