Little Mix and Choir Cover Whitney Houston and Jason Deruloby Matthew Scott Donnelly | PopCrush
The Church of Little Mix is officially in session, and our missals are wide open to Hymn No. 1.
In the clip above, Perrie, Leigh-Anne, Jade and Jesy start a small-scale set with only a piano as accompaniment, but the intro gives way to a jazzy beat, full-blown choral production and the likes of Jason Derulo‘s “Want You to Want me.” It’s lively, uplifting and, within a few seconds, backed by a straight-up organ effect. Let us pray!
And, when the communion’s been served and the tabernacle closed, LM switches gears and selects a closing psalm from yesteryear to see their disciples out: Whitney Houston‘s 1987 hit “I Wanna Dance with Somebody.” In the event the sermon eluded anyone in earshot, this number provides a buzz that’ll last until after-mass coffee and doughnut holes are served in the reception area. In their name, we pray…
If the performance puts a smile on your face, you can rest assured the good vibes will keep coming with the band’s forthcoming work. “…there’s a bit of ‘60s-era going on in the album,” Jesy recently told Chart Show TV. “It’s all different, but it is a very pop album, very happy, very uplifting album.”
Check out the LM cover, and tell us if you’re a believer!
