An American Airlines pilot was forced to make an emergency landing after a passenger refused to stop singing "I Will Always Love You," a Dolly Parton song made famous by the late Whitney Houston, the Daily Mail reports.

The pilot changed course halfway through the six-hour flight and made an emergency landing in Kansas City, Mo., so that officers could escort the woman off the plane. Although staff asked passengers not to take photographs, one managed to capture a short video of the singing:

Houston sang the song in the hit film The Bodyguard. Watch that video here:
