Young old girl blows crowd away with her rendition of Whitney Houston's iconic song
The 10-year-old, who has been named only as "Connie from Sheffield," stunned the crowd with her powerful rendition of Whitney Houston’s classic hit song.
Connie from Sheffield was filmed singing her soulful rendition of the song during the talent show at The Beachcomber.
Robert Blyde, the manager of The Beachcomber, told Lincolnshire Live that the girl's performance was "phenomenal."
“She sang Whitney Houston. It was a woman’s voice inside a child. It was phenomenal," he said. “I was blown away.”
However, according to Blyde, the girl may not return to the venue to perform in the final because she had already been approached by the hit television show, "The Voice Kids."
The manager added that the video of Connie from Sheffield singing “I Will Always Love You” has been viewed almost one million times and that it has gone around the world.
Beachcomber’s Got Talent is one of the most popular local programs which run throughout the summer until the end of September.
The winners of the talent competition can expect to win some big prizes such as flights and accommodation for an all-inclusive holiday to either Tenerife or Benidorm, a meal to the Beachcomber, and a cash prize.
As reported by Lincolnshire Live, the charge for entry into the competition goes toward the charity.
Time after time, young people have surprised the world with their rendition of Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”
Another young Houston wannabe from the Philippines also amazed audiences when he tried out for a singing competition, as reported by the Huffington Post.
According to YouTube user “migui2k” who uploaded the video, the street child shocked everybody with his performance of “I Will Always Love You.”
Reacting to those who had doubted the authenticity of the video, YouTube user “KureguXD,” commented: “You all would be surprised how much talent these kids in the Philippines actually have.”
“Personally, they have really wowed me. They can sing, dance, and have really great crafting ideas, while still having next to nothing. In response to all of you questioning why everyone isn’t cheering him on, it's because when you hear them sing all the time, you aren’t always enthusiastic.”
The Huffington Post reported that they originally thought the boy was just lip syncing because he was very incredible. However, they realized that this adorable child really knows how to belt the song out after comparing it to Houston’s version.
"I Will Always Love You" was initially written by country superstar Dolly Parton in 1973. Houston rearranged it as a soul ballad for the soundtrack to her film debut, "The Bodyguard."
Her version of the song went on to become one of the biggest singles in history. It spent 14 weeks at the top of the US Billboard HOT 100.
