Watch: Maggie Rogers performs somber rendition of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’

Maggie Rogers will be performing at the Phoenix on March 20 and 21

Maggie Rogers recently performed a somber rendition of Whitney Houston’s iconic 80s smash “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” on the latest episode of The Strombo Show.

Rogers frequently concludes her shows by exiting the stage to the classic track. “This song comes on after we finish playing our last song,” Rogers explains. “It’s been really special to see the crowd sort of turn into a dance party on its own with this song.” Rogers strips back the track, focusing on her voice and an acoustic guitar for a melancholic, almost sobering experience.

Watch Maggie Rogers cover “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” in the video below at the 23:00 mark.

Catch Maggie Rogers at the Phoenix on March 20th and 21st.
