Kygo celebrates the memory of Whitney Houston with remix of ‘Higher Love’
One of the brightest singers of all time, Whitney Houston, that passed away on February 11, 2012 with 48 years old, is remembered and celebrated by great artists of world music. With more than 170 million albums sold worldwide, in addition to its 6 Grammy Awards, today it was time for electronic music to honor this great artist, with a new track by Kygo.
Kygo is already a great acquaintance of us. An artist present at major festivals and electronic music events in the world, with several hits, including his classic ‘Firestone‘ or more recent releases such as ‘Not Ok‘ and ‘Carry On‘, as well as working with singers such as Ellie Goulding and Selena Gomez, the Norwegian DJ and Producer was largely responsible for releasing the remixed version of ‘Higher Love‘, an almost forgotten Whitney Houston cover for Steve Winwood‘s music.
The song was originally recorded by Whitney in 1990 and is considered a rare recording since it was released only in Japanese versions of the singer’s album “I’m Your Baby Tonight“, the singer’s third. Today, almost 30 years later and after Kygo received permission from the singer’s family, the song gained the artist’s distinctive electronic sound, giving a very mordant and dancing tone, but without taking away all the class and grandeur that Whitney’s voice had. Listen now this beautiful collaboration.
