She has previously covered “How Will I Know,” “I’m Every Woman” and “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)” on her talk show. She regularly covers songs to entertain the audience. It seems that there is no song that she can’t cover! Kelly once said that she knows every Whitney Houston song ever made.
“Higher Love” was originally recorded by Steve Winwood in 1986. Whitney later covered it on her third album. In 2019, the song was reworked by DJ and producer Kygo into a new hit song. It seems that the song will truly live on forever!
