Dolly Parton has always credited Whitney Houston with making her song, 'I will always love you', a worldwide hit.

Now, it's time she thanked the singing sloth.

In hilarious footage, the sleepy creature was captured yawning in perfect sync with the power ballad, even hitting the highest note.

Vine user Matthew Paquette recently uploaded the adorable video, which shows the sloth open his mouth widely as Houston famously belts out the words, 'and IIIIIII-IIIIIIIII-IIIIIII', before snapping it shut.

Thanks to Paquette's clever editing, the video has attracted nearly 3000 likes on YouTube and has gone viral on social media.

 

'I am always editing and I try to post videos regularly,' Paquette wrote on his YouTube account. 'I have no plan or schedule but I keep my channel active.'

There are also singing sloth Twitter and Facebook pages to keep fans entertained, although it's not clear if they're about the same cuddly vocalist.
