Just taking a break from my loads of work when I found a viral video of Melanie Amaro, a 20-year-old singer who won X-Factor USA in 2011, singing “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston. Her voice is amazing, and I can’t help but compare her to Jessica Sanchez singing the same song during the last weeks of American Idol Season 11.
Here are the videos. Take your pick! Who’s got the better rendition?
Just some tale of the tape…
