Charice Pays Tribute To Whitney Houston [VIDEO]

February 15th, 2012 | 2 comments | Posted by Jen

Never been a big fan of Charice. Those big pipes just didn’t fit such a little dimply pipsqueak and the whole package gave me a certain vertigo. But she’s grown up a lot, as you can see here:

There’s something chilling about this. Not because it’s so damn good–though that it is–but because Charice is 19 going on 20, the same age as Whitney when she signed with Clive Davis and Arista Records. When I chewed on that fact a little, the phrase “ships passing in the night” popped in my head. I didn’t remember that the phrase originated in a Longfellow poem until I looked it up, but it’s eerily appropriate:

Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing,
Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness;
So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another,
Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence.

RIP Whitney. Without your voice, there’s darkness, and then silence.

Thank you, @BasseyworldLive

I Will Always Love Yu Chun

April 7th, 2010 | 10 comments | Posted by Jen

By now, you’ve probably seen the vid of Lin Yu Chun rocking Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” on the Taiwanese singing competition Super Star Avenue. Because, it’s, like, EVERYWHERE. Oh: and it is AMAZING.

He’s being heralded as the next Susan Boyle, and I’m assuming that has less to do with the fact that he was also discovered in a televised singing competition and more to do with the fact that he, too, looks like he’s been locked up in an attic his whole life and dressed and coiffed by some sadistic motherfucker with a twisted sense of humor.

But, man, can that crazy-lookin’ dude sing.

The Girl Who Will Drive Whitney Back to Crack (And No, We Don’t Mean Bobbi Kristina)

Remember how we said that 2008 was the Year of the Pinaysian? Well, Oprah backed that up Monday with her show on “The World’s Smartest Kids,” when 15 year-old Pinaysian sensasian Charice Pempengco shredded Whitney’s “I Have Nothing.” And if POprah (that’s “Pope-rah”) believes it, then, like it or not, it must be true.

Watch Charice sing “I Will Always Love You” on Ellen here.
