GLEE Pays Tribute to Whitney
Next Tuesday, April 24th on FOX, Glee will be doing a Whitney tribute show featuring 7 of her songs!
Whitney's Music To Be Featured on "Glee".
Did you love Mercedes amazing performance of "I Look to You" on Glee last year?
首先，先來回味一下"I Look to You"
GLEE - "I Look to You" (2011)
GLEE - Full Performance of "I Will Always Love You" (2012)
Glee‘s covers from their upcoming Whitney Houston tribute episode have found their way online, and for the most part, they’re all a treat: Chris Colfer does a fabulous job in his head voice for “I Have Nothing”, and Naya Rivera and Heather Morris duet on a pumped-up, modernized version of “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)”.
Other tracks include “So Emotional”, “Saving All My Love For You”, “My Love Is Your Love”, “It’s Not Right (But It’s Okay)”, and an a cappella “How Will I Know”, no doubt inspired by the vocal-only track circling the web after Houston’s death. For those of you wondering, “Where the heck is ‘I Will Always Love You’?!”, the classic Whitney tune was performed on the Valentine’s Day episode by Amber Riley.
Head over to Whitney’s official site to stream all the songs from next Tuesday’s episode, “Dance With Somebody”.
"GLEE": ‘DANCE WITH SOMEBODY’ EPISODE SONG LIST
‘Glee‘ will pay tribute to the fallen legend Whitney Houston on this week’s episode, entitled ‘Dance With Somebody,’ airing April 24 at 8PM ET.
The episode features songs exclusively by Houston, some of which are reworked. The episode focuses on the New Directions’ apprehension over their impending graduation as well as Will and Emma’s upcoming wedding, which he wants to push up. Based on the song list, it sounds like there may be some trouble in paradise for Kurt and Blaine as well. Dramarama!
The themes make the ep a tearjerker to begin with, and when you add in the tragedy of Houston’s loss, it looks like Gleeks are going to need a whole lot of Kleenex to get through the hour.
‘Glee’ previously dedicated their Valentines Day themed ‘Heart‘ episode to Houston, as it aired just after her passing and coincidentally featured Mercedes (Amber Riley)’s powerful rendition of ‘I Will Always Love You.’ Fox released a preview of the episode as well as the cast’s moving, melancholy cover of ‘How Will I Know.’
The episode will be the second dedicated to a fallen legend. In January, Ryan Murphy and Co. paid tribute to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, who in 2009 passed as suddenly and as shockingly as Houston did.
