Her success continued with albums like "Whitney" (1987) and "I'm Your Baby Tonight" (1990), but it was her role in the film "The Bodyguard" (1992) and its soundtrack that cemented her status as a pop icon. The soundtrack featured her rendition of "I Will Always Love You," which became one of the best-selling singles of all time.
