Today (August 9), Whitney Houston would have celebrated her 49th birthday. Despite her untimely passing in February, WATM pays tribute to one of the best, if not the best, to ever pick up a mic. Even at her lowest points, nothing or no one can take away what she brought to the table, musically, in the ’80s and ’90s. Speaking of the ’80s, watch Whit crush the stage — with nothing more than big hair, a fringe-y dress and a mic — on MTV in 1986.
Thanks for the music. Happy Birthday, Whitney!
Last night the cast of Glee remembered the late Whitney Houston in an episode called “Dance With Somebody“. Opening with a rousing rendition of “How Will I Know,” the cast performed seven of Houston’s hits, including “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” “It’s Not Right but It’s Okay” and “I Have Nothing.”
I’m not an avid Glee watcher, but whatever I tune in I’m always entertained. The cast nailed its “How Will I Know” performance!
Watch the performances below.
I can’t believe I’m typing this.
