Los Angeles: `Glee` creator Ryan Murphy reportedly is planning to dedicate an entire episode of the musical TV series to pay tribute to Whitney Houston.

The producer/director paid homage to the tragic superstar with a note at the end of the `Glee` episode which aired the week after the singer`s February 11 death and featured Amber Riley`s pitch perfect rendition of Houston`s `I Will Always Love You` signature tune.

And now he is planning to showcase eight of the soul star`s hits in an episode that will revolve around Houston`s music, reported E Online.

The show will use the music "as a way to say goodbye, a way to respectfully say thank you for her music," a source said.

And `Glee` star Lea Michele appears to have confirmed the news in a tweet on Thursday. She wrote, "Starting a new episode today. A very special tribute to one of the world`s most amazing singers. Very excited about this one."
