Feb. 13 (UPI) — Expectant mom Ciara performed an energetic tribute to Whitney Houston over the weekend.

The 31-year-old singer marked the five-year anniversary of Houston’s death Saturday by lip-syncing and dancing to the late star’s hit song “I’m Every Woman” in a new video.

“#ImEveryWoman! It’s All In Me! Choreography by @galenlooks Filmed by @timmilgram,” she captioned the post for her 15.1 million Instagram followers.

Ciara’s video features cameos by her husband, NFL star Russell Wilson, and 2-year-old son, Future Zahir, whom she shares with ex-fiancĂ© Future. She previously remembered Houston on BET’s 106 & Park in 2012.

“She was so humble and so much fun. She had so much personality and I feel like any person that had the chance to be in her presence would have walked away feeling like they had an amazing experience,” the star said.

“Her legacy will live on forever and if I can do anything in my power, I will continue to let my generation know about her,” she added.

Ciara and Wilson, a 28-year-old quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, married in July after more than a year of dating. The couple announced in October that they’re expecting their first child.

“She’s doing great. It’s a blessing, obviously,” Wilson said of his wife while speaking to Extra this month. “[Her due date is] getting close. We’re getting there. We’ve got some time, though … We do have a name picked out.”
