only one persons can sing WHITNEY’S SONG …. and she’s the ONE … with DAVID FOSTER … I will not IGNORE …” I HAVE NOTHING ”

i have nothing ” by CHARICE

this was with 5 minutes notice Jen and Chaka will be great considering the circumstances. is that all you do, sit around all day and judge others. We all wish we had half their talent.

Christina and Mariah should do the tribute not someone from American Idol.

Charice is the only singer who can come close to what Whitney was in her prime. Charice is probably the best LIVE performer of her generation. Charice’s rendition of “I Have Nothing” on Oprah is what launched her career with Oprah calling her “the most talent girl in the world”. Charice’s rendition of “Run To You” at age 12 is breathtaking – a song that Whitney would not attempt live. Even Whitney’s much vaunted “StarSpangledBanner” @ the ’91 Superbowl, which was liipsynced, was overshadowed by Charice’s live rendition of the SSB @ the 2009 opening day game between the Dodgers and SF Giants. Then catcher Russel Martin said “Charice’s rendiition of the SSB was better than the game itself.

@sky:

Is Jennifer Hudson a “one hit wonder” (I Am Telling You)? I heard her sing the SSB at a sports event – Did not impress me. And those weightloss ads…one of them is enough. As for Chaka Khan I watched her when she appeared with David Foster and Friends. The lady is woefully out of shape and should be retired.

@Too bad: Christina is super talented, but I guess I don’t like the “technique”… sometime less is more, restraint leaves us anticipating. Just my opinion. I understand your a fan and sorry if your offended.

Really GRAMMY! Charice should of been the one who should give a tribute to Whitney on the Grammy. SAD SAD SAD. Whitney would be so proud if it was Charice.

Please stop bashing Jen, this girl didn’t ask to do this tribute.
As a matter of fact, i think she is the only one that sings with all that power and passion like Whitney . With all that being said, no one, can really touch Whitney, when it comes to voice.Another thing addressing the fact that someone made a comment to the fact that Jennifer is an American Idol looser, guess what, Americans don’t always make the right choices, as we all see. look where the girl is at now. Don’t be a hater.

You must not have a musical bone in your body.:

@ Amanda…you must not have a musical bone in your body….Please take the time to think before you speak.

Charice can sing Whitney Houston songs better.

Jennifer Hudson destroyed Whitney Houston song on Academy Awards. The song wasn’t even recognizable, it was one of the worst performances I’ve ever seen.
