Sam Smith has managed to convert an upbeat Whitney classic dance hit into a beautifully tragic love ballad, that will touch your soul and bring tears to your eyes.
The 21-year-old Brit, who has just released his debut album In the Lonely Hour, took some time to record a live cover of Whitney Houston’s 1985 hit, “How Will I know,” at SiriusXM’s studio.
Smith’s slowed-down, dramatic ballad, manage to turn the lyrics: “Falling in love is all bittersweet/ This love is strong/ Why do I feel weak?” into a stunning love song.
