A woman whose identity has not been revealed was ejected from a plane when she disrupted other passengers by singing a popular Whitney Houston song nonstop in a flight from Los Angeles to New York.

The American Airlines plane had to make an emergency landing in Kansas City after she id not stop singing "I Will Always Love You", which was written and performed by Dolly Parton and re-recorded by Whitney Houston.

A federal air Marshall who was on the plane arrested her, reported Aceshowbiz.

"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.

The problem with the female apparently started before the flight took off, when she was involved in an argument with another lady.

A passenger said that after the plane took off, he heard loud singing from the back of the plane. Two hours after taking off, the bad singing finally got on everybody's nerves.

"Finally the singing stopped and was replaced by screaming. The air marshal came back and failed to calm her down, so the pilot came on and informed us that because of this unruly passenger we were being diverted to Kansas City. It seemed like the singing got louder after that," the passenger recalled.

The woman, however, was released without any charges but was not allowed to board other American Airlines flights. The woman reportedly claimed that the incident happened because she was diabetic.
