Woman escorted off plane for singing Whitney Houston song nonstop(Credit: AP)

An American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to New York made an emergency landing in Kansas City, Mo., to let off a female passenger who refused to stop singing “I Will Always Love You,” the Dolly Parton song later covered and popularized by Whitney Houston.

The woman has been released without charges, but American Airlines has refused to fly her to New York. “The woman was being disruptive and was removed from the plane for interfering with the flight crew,” said Kansas City International Airport spokesman Joe McBride. “There was a federal air marshal on the aircraft, who subdued the woman and put her in cuffs and removed her from the plane.”



One passenger snuck partial video footage of the incident, released by WBTV:
