If there’s one thing most singers are told, it’s to not try and sing Whitney Houston’s 1992 classic, ‘I Will Always Love You‘. However, a video has surfaced that has changed our opinions. A blind girl sings Whitney Houston with such passion that we can’t help but applaud her efforts.
It’s a legendary song that cannot be topped so people are told not to bother as the results don’t often compare. But when we saw this girl, we were in awe. She’s a true talent and hopefully a star in the making.
This incredible girl named Elsie is from the Philippines and her talents have now gone global thanks to this viral video of her incredible singing voice.
Sadly, Elsie is blind and she’s never been to school and she cannot speak a word of English. But that doesn’t stop her belting out her favorite songs. Specifically, this Whitney classic from The Bodyguard.
This talented blind girl sings Whitney Houston classic and it’s like the star is in the room.
Elsie belts out an acapella rendition of the hit song with such skill, passion and natural talent. Honestly, it was so moving to see. She hit all the high notes and did so beautifully. If you close your eyes, it’s like Whitney Houston is still with us.
Elsie lives in a small fishing village in the Philippines. She learns music by listening to songs with repetition, which explains why she knows all the words despite not understanding English.
We think this was a phenomenal tribute to the late singer. We know she would have been very impressed by this girl’s unbelievably talented vocals.
