Back in March we learned that Glee is planning a tribute episode to the late Whitney Houston. Last week, we got our first look at photos from that Whitney tribute ep. Today we get to hear, in full, the Glee version of Houston’s hit single How Will I Know. This coming Tuesday, Glee will use the music of Whitney Houston to say goodbye to the departing senior characters on the show and, in turn, will also be saying goodbye to the late Whitney Houston. The performance video of How Will I Know, posted below, is completely acapella … and entirely powerful and beautiful. Check it out.
There really isn’t much commentary to add to this performance video. The voices in unison say it all. I love that the decision was made for this performance of How Will I Know to be sung without music, with only 4 voices in harmony. I also love the little locker shrine to Whitney that we see briefly at the :33 mark. I honestly got chills more than once listening to this performance. I’m really looking forward to this episode of Glee.
