Watch: The Cast Of ‘Glee’ Performs ‘How Will I Know’ In Tribute To Whitney Houston


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.

    That was absolutely beautiful. Cannot wait to see the other Whitney songs they will perform!

  • kendra

    Awww..I’m so tired of this show and Lea Michele’s pitchy thing she does at the end of words when singing, but that really was pretty..

  • nicole

    im still not sure about this tribute episode..mostly because glee’s tribute episodes suck.
    but i actually really liked that.

    Beautiful rendition of this song. If ANYONE gave Lea a punch in the throat I wouldn’t hold it against them…UGH!

  • Isa

    Why doesn’t this show allow Mr. Shue to sing anymore? All he gets to do is stand by and stare as the “kids” sing.

    • nicole

      he sang during the disco episode (one song, but still – he sang)

  • J to the Da

    Cried through the WHOLE DAMN THING.

  • Kris

    Damn was Whitney amazing. I just LOVE that song. What a great reinterpretation of How Will I Know.

  • I mean I don’t watch Glee anymore but I saw this video and it’s enough to make me want to watch the episode in full! Hell, I’ll probably watch it mainly because it’s a Whitney tribute and she was FIRE but I’ve heard some other songs and things sound interesting.
