Vintage Video: Grammy Award Record of the Year Performances From Natalie Cole, Eric Clapton, Whitney Houston & Sheryl Crow

We continue our look back at the performances of Grammy Award Record of the Year songs with four from the 90's.

Natalie Cole revived her career with the David Foster produced album of songs made famous by her father Nat King Cole. One of the tracks on the album, Unforgettable, was a "duet" between father and daughter that beat out Bryan Adams (Everything I Do (I Do It For You)), Amy Grant (Baby Baby), Bonnie Raitt (Something to Talk About) and R.E.M. (Losing My Religion).


The next year (1993), Eric Clapton took Record of the Year for his touching tribute to his son who had been killed in a fall from an apartment window. Clapton defeated Billy Ray Cyrus (Achy Breaky Heart), Celine Dion & Peabo Bryson (Beauty and the Beast), k.d. lang (Constant Craving) and Vanessa Williams (Save the Best For Last). Clapton would win the award four years later for Change the World.


In 1994, Whitney Houston's classic rendition of Dolly Parton's I Will Always Love You from the soundtrack of The Bodyguard, beat tracks by Peabo Bryson & Regina Bell (A Whole New World), Billy Joel (The River of Dreams), Sting (If Ever I Lose My Faith in You) and Neil Young (Harvest Moon).


1995 brought a real surprise as Sheryl Crow took Record of the Year for her debut single All I Wanna Do, winning over Boyz II Men (I'll Make Love to You), Mary Chapin Carpenter (He Thinks He'll Keep Her), Bonnie Raitt (Love Sneakin' Up on You) and Bruce Springsteen (Streets of Philadelphia).
