One could not say Whitney Houston was fading when she recorded "I Know Him So Well" with her mom on her second album. Not a chart hit but the album did well.

Barry Manilow had a top 40 hit with "Memory" just before his star began to wane.

And then there are the three Linda Ronstadt standard albums which paved the way for three decades of "prestige" American songbook albums from artists as diverse as, well, Rod Stewart.

But your central point is valid--pop stars covering show music is more a novelty than anything else.
