Did Whitney Houston ever record "Killing me softly"?

I know Roberta Flack recorded it years ago, and then The Fugees',

but someone said Whitney recorded it also. Please advise, I am usually up on my music & movie trivia..

    No, thank Heaven. That song needs to be caressed and finessed. Whitney's range of expression goes from 10 to 11, really LOUD to stoopid LOUD.

    (And don't even get me started on Wyclef Jean's and Lauryn Hill's complete hack job!)

    Here's a list of people who have recorded the song:

    Mike Auldridge

    The Columbia Ballroom Orchestra

    Perry Como

    Floyd Cramer

    Ferrante & Teicher

    Roberta Flack

    The Fugees

    Hampton Hawes

    Lance Hayward

    Engelbert Humperdinck

    Killer Ranks


    Johnny Mathis


    Anne Murray

    Mario Peralta

    Rita Remington

    Ron Sanfilippo

    The Starsound Orchestra

    Sonny Stitt

    Al B Sure

    Luther Vandross

    Roger Williams
