Mickey Guyton Shares Brilliant Cover of ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ [Watch]
Mickey Guyton takes fans back to 1987 with a stunning cover of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” and based on this performance, they’ll probably want to hang out there for a bit. Guyton takes the iconic pop-dance hit and strips it down to just vocals and keys, slowing down the tempo and transforming it into a sort of ballad of longing.
The artist leaves no doubt that her vocal chops are the real deal from note one, belting some lines and delicately flitting over others. Add in a few unique runs, and Guyton has given it a style all her own. The singer says in the caption that she loves the “girls’ night” song, and it’s clear from her delivery that’s true. She’s enjoying every moment and putting her all into the iconic tune.
Guyton has broken into country music with confidence, steadily growing her fanbase and proving to the world she’s ready for stardom. The singer-songwriter released her self-titled EP with Capitol Nashville in 2015, and her most recent single — the pop-fueled "Heartbreak Song" — is set to appear on her upcoming debut full-length record. The upbeat, sassy tune is a response to a guy who apparently bragged that he was the subject of her first single, "Better Than You Left Me." Thankfully, she's found better —Guyton recently announced she’s engaged to her long-distance boyfriend of four years.
