British crooner Sam Smith has transformed the late Whitney Houston‘s 1985 dance hit “How Will I Know” into a stirring ballad anchored by his familiar falsetto
Smith performed the cover on radio program SiriusXM Hits 1, which posted the video over the weekend to much fanfare, causing his rendition to become a Facebook trending topic well into Monday. The video is nearing 1 million YouTube views as of Monday morning.
