Dubai: Videos of the Dubai Fountain swaying to Whitney Houston's hit I Will Always Love You are going viral on YouTube following the singer's death.

The 900-feet fountain, set in the Burj Khalifa lake, has had the song in its line-up for a few months - but there's been renewed interest in the videos of the performance posted online.

View for one video, posted in July last year, went from 65,000 views to 260,000 in just three days since Satuday.

Gossip blogger Perez Hilton, who appears to be under the impression that the Dubai Fountain was performing a tribute, posted another video on Monday.

The video has since been the most viewed on his blog, which, according to him, averages 300 million hits a month.
