Some of you might remember us going bonkers last year for Series SINGER from China where our beloved Songstress Sandy Lam took home top honours.
The Show is back on Hunan Television and fortunately, YouTube also. While the Series pits on-stage, professional and signed Recording Artists for audience votes, we’d expect competitors to be Chinese or at least from Asia. We were however thrown for a loop when we read JessieJ – yes, “Price Tag”Jessie J– had agreed to sign-on!
While we’d expect there to be a major voter bias, week after week the soulful British star has taken top spot on polls and she’s showing no signs of stopping. And rightfully so, she’s been magnificent!
By her side all this time his is her manager Joel Madden (Good Charlotte) who can be seen cheering her on on-camera. Never mind the awkward audience reactions, the production on this Series is superb and it puts the Artists front and center in a dignified way. We are stoked to see what she’ll pick next week and are willing to bet she’ll at some point go full-on Chinese.
You must witness the vocal perfection that is hercover of Whitney Houston‘s I Have Nothing.
I HAVE NOTHING (Whitney Houston Cover)
Jessie J takes to Instagram to dedicate her performance to Houston, stating tearfully “It’s taken me 25 years to find the courage to sing this whole song on stage. It was one of the most unforgettable and special moments in my life.”.
We’ll never forget meeting Jessie J in Toronto a few years back. Despite not feeling well, she was so lovely! While we don’t think she has had the hits or the material that she truly deserved, here’s to many new people discovering her talent. We remember her Tweeting about being terrified flying Porter finding the plane too small! LOL Dream and live big.
