British Singer Jessie J recently made headlines when a video of her cover of Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing and her own song, Domino went viral.
You’re probably wondering why the singer made headlines, especially since singers always cover songs anyway but, as it turns out, Jessie has been competing (yep!) in a Chinese singing competition called, The Singer and has been wowing audiences everywhere.
Jessie recently posted a video of herself singing her hit song on the first episode of the show and it was very well received.
On the second episode, she sang Whitney’s famous song and left everyone in the audience in awe of her vocal prowess.
*As tears fall down my face*
You are the reason I started to sing. When I first heard I Will Always Love You I was 4 years old, my life changed forever.
You are everything.
The best to ever do it.
More than anything, I hope I did you proud🌹 pic.twitter.com/loquwBhPxr
