At times I feel like I'll have more chance of getting an album from D'Angelo in my hands sooner than British songstress Tawiah, but in a recent acoustic session with Stagedoor FM and Ont'Sofa the singer assured us that her long-awaited debut LP is coming (hopefully early next year) and then went on to showcase exactly why we are anticipating the release so much. Showcasing her guitar skills as well as her phenomenal vocals, Tawiah, accompanied by DivaGeek's Ben Jones, delivered a stripped-back, slowed-down version of Whitney Houston's mega-hit, "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" that is guaranteed to give you goosebumps. Gone are the original's lighthearted pop leanings and instead we are given a soul-infused, heartfelt acoustic ballad that certainly does Whitney's original justice. In a single word, stunning.
