Watch: Sam Smith Covers Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know”

Published

It is no secret that British singer, Sam Smith has some serious chops. But in a new cover, the singer/songwriter proves why he is one of the most talked about artists today.

The 22-year-old, who quickly gained recognition after appearing on Disclosure’s single “Latch,” recently did a cover of Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know” … And it’s incredible. In the slowed down version of the hit 80’s track, Smith is accompanied by a pianist and a guitarist while he belts out the song which first appeared on Houston’s debut album, Whitney Houston. 

“How will I know if you really love me,” Sam tweeted on Monday morning, later writing: “Woah. My Whitney cover has had 817,055 views in 3 days!! Jeeeeheeeeezus.”

Smith, who recently dropped his debut album, In the Lonely Hour, has always been open about his love for the late singer. “A Whitney Houston song that makes me happy, it’s a feel-good song,” the singer recently told Rolling Stone. “I love the juxtaposition of a melancholy lyric with an upbeat sound. People forget that’s how she rose to fame. The more mature Whitney, like ‘I Will Always Love You,’ came later.”

He also told People magazine that, “I love legends like Whitney Houston. I love female voices and female divas. I find Amy Winehouse iconic. Everything about her, just the way she looks.”

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
