Less than two days after news broke of singer Whitney Houston's death, a fountain video synchronized to I Will Always Love You from Dubai, has gone viral.
Made in July 2011, the video, titled Dubai Fountains, has received more than 200,000 views and has been considered by many to be a tribute to the late singer.
Lump in throat again @Dubai Fountains - I Will Always Love You Tribute to Whitney Houston, wrote one fan on Twitter on Monday.

The nearly five-minute video showcases Dubai's water features, as the city's skyscrapers serve as a backdrop to the light and water show. The makers of the fountain video are actually from English College Dubai, a school with nearly 1,000 students that follow the British Curriculum.
Nothing really to do with the English College, but this makes it on to the site as a testament to Dubai's best water feature. A right belter from Whitney, accompany the fountains. Filmed on Sunday 03 July 2011, reads the video's description.
Buzz of the fountain video comes eight years -- almost to the date -- after Houston's Valentine's Day show at Dubai's Nad El Sheba Club (clip below). In December 2004, Houston embarked on what would be the last world tour of her career and life, bringing the Nothing but Love World Tour to Russia, Japan, Germany and other countries.

On Saturday, Houston was discovered dead at her Beverly Hilton Hotel bathroom, hours before she was scheduled to attend Clive Davis' pre-Grammy Awards party. She was 48.
While several prescription drugs were found in the singer's room, the Los Angeles County coroner's office stated that it was too soon to confirm that drugs were the cause of her death. The investigation, which includes a full toxicology report, could take six to eight weeks.
According to TMZ, Houston's body will be transported to the East Coast on director and actor Tyler Perry's private jet on Monday. Houston's funeral is scheduled to take place in New Jersey later this week.
Houston is survived by her daughter, 18-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown.
