George Benson - An End Once and For All

"The Greatest Love of All" is a song written by composers Michael Masser and Linda Creed . It was originally recorded in 1977 by American singer and guitarist George Benson, who made the song a substantial hit, peaking at number 2 on the R&B chart that year, the first R&B chart Top Ten hit for Arista Records. The song was written and recorded to be the main theme of the 1977 film The Greatest, a biopic of the boxer Muhammad Ali. Eight years after Benson's original recording, the song became even more well known for a version by Whitney Houston, whose 1985 cover eventually topped the charts, peaking at number 1 in Australia, Canada, U.S. and on the R&B chart in 1986.
