While perusing Youtube looking at all the Whitney Houston videos, truly immersing myself in the legend that was Whitney Houston, I came across a young singer who truly embodied the musicality of Whitney. James Anderson, a 13 year old singer from London, who appeared on the British version of American Idol, can be see below singing I have nothing. After watching this video several times, I asked myself, “is this child truly 13.” While much can be said about Whitney Houston’s personal life, at her greatest, Whitney’s voice is the stuff of legends and only truly talented singers should attempt to honor her musically. James, kudos to you for honoring Whitney’s musical correctly.
This is how you honor a legend
