How Will I Know (Whitney Houston) w/ Boy Meets Girl

How Will I Know (Whitney Houston) w/ Boy Meets Girl

Whitney Houston becomes our first official two-time covered artist, and it's only fitting that we enlist the help of our only two-time multi-artist guests! George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam, aka Boy Meets Girl ("Waiting For a Star to Fall," writers of "How Will I Know" and "I Wanna Dance With Somebody") talk with us about their original intentions for one of Whitney Houston’s breakout hits, the *other* artist that almost recorded “Waiting For a Star to Fall,” and the art of making yourself show up in difficult times.
