Sam Smith's 'How Will I Know' May Be The Greatest Whitney Houston Cover Ever

Posted: Updated:

UK singer Sam Smith has been of 2014's most unlikely success stories. In an era of pop star shock tactics, Smith has become famous at home and here across the pond thanks exclusively to the power of his falsetto.

But just in case you thought his breakthrough ballad "Stay With Me" was a fluke, Smith is here to prove we will be listening to his voice for years to come with this heartrending, piano-only cover of Whitney Houston's classic "How Will I Know."

It's certainly the best Houston cover I've ever heard, and just to put it into perspective below we've included the isolated vocal track version of the original.
