VOTD: Ben Rector wants to feel the heat with somebody

The Tulsa singer pays tribute to the late Whitney Houston.

You’d think playing all the instruments on a single track would be intimidating enough, but former Tulsan Ben Rector took it a couple steps further at Norman’s Blackwatch Studios.

That being my favorite Whitney Houston jam, “I Wanna Dance with Somebody.”

Compare the two for yourself. Would love to hear opinions in the comments:
