Kristine Reese: "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" (Whitney Houston). I love every one of the songs from the late-great Ms. Houston's anthology, but this is the song that started my love affair. My mom and dad tell me I used to ask them to play this song on repeat in the car as a child (back when people used tapes — remember tapes?) and that I would sing it at the top of my lungs, which would also explain why this song is my karaoke go-to.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
