Re: Official Whitney Houston Thread: Tribute to a Legend!

'Glee' honors Whitney Houston with an a cappella 'How Will I Know'




The first clip from the big "Glee" Whitney Houston tribute, "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," is in, and be forewarned: you might cry when you watch Amber Riley, Lea Michele, Naya Rivera and Chris Colfer absolutely slay a chilling a cappella version of Houston's classic "How Will I Know."

Really -- it's goosebump-inducing like the best moments of Season 1 were, and it's also really, really promising in terms of how this whole Whitney tribute will play out. Although the music of Michael Jackson is just as (if not more) iconic, it seems like this episode could turn out better than Season 3's other tribute just because they're being more creative with the song arrangements. Remember how well the Madonna episode worked?

As for context, it's unclear what's going on before the song occurs, but during, the New Directions members hang out at a locker shrine dedicated to Whitney before they walk 'n sing through the McKinley hallways and wind up in the auditorium. To borrow a word from Jennifer Lopez, it will leave you covered in goosies.* Just wait until the beat kicks in and the four stand on the stage in spotlights. Goosies!

The "Glee" Whitney Houston tribute will air Tuesday, April 24 at 8 p.m. on FOX.

Re: Official Whitney Houston Thread: Tribute to a Legend!

While I'm sure it relates to the story of the episode, my favorite part of How Will I Know is it's infectious energy. I don't love it melancholy, but the voices are powerful, and harmonies good of course.

Still can't believe she's gone. I find her catalog so much more exciting than anything that's coming out today.

My favorite acapella version:

I will watch Glee for this even though I don't really like that show.

I think Janet said it best something along the lines of it sounds mean but you have to move on. :sigh: I'm still not over it.

I think as a fan so far away from it, it's easy to forget in a way. It wasn't as if I was reading her tweets or she was in the midst of releasing a ton of new music, so day to day, it's almost the same, and than this thread pops up, or one of her songs comes on and it sort of dawns on me again and again.

I liked this because Miki spoke to Whitney wanting to be 'accepted', the toll that takes, and the slings and arrows taken from the resentment from her being a 'crossover' artist.

Re: Official Whitney Houston Thread: Tribute to a Legend!

This is Whitney's last recorded song- recorded less than a week before she passed. The song is from her upcoming movie, 'Sparkle': titled "CELEBRATE"

BRAND NEW SONG!

They had a flashmob to celebrate her b'day (it's not as good as the one in San Francisco- but it's cute):

Did people see the BET tribute with Cissy? It was soo touching Hopefully the American Music Awards and DivasVH1 can do a good job too.

Also buy the Sparkle soundtrack to listen to Whitney's final () recordings if you haven't already.
