Asian Whitney Soundalike Signs Record Deal!

| Filed under: Music MinuteWacky, Tacky & TrueWhitney HoustonYouTubeBusiness Blitz

With the state she seems to be in these days, maybe this kid can finish up the rest of her tour for her!

Taiwanese singer Lin Yu-chun, AKA the kid who sounds just like Whitney Houston in that Youtube video (above) - has signed a record deal with Sony Music!

He says:

"I still can't believe this is real. You don't have to be a good-looking man or woman to succeed. Just be yourself and try your best."

Lin became an overnight sensation when he appeared on the talent show Avenue To Stardom and performed the diva's hit I Will Always Love You, and will now release an album of both Chinese and English songs, set to hit shelves in July!

We have to admit, it will certainly be interesting to see if they actually give this kid a legit album or if he'll just be marketed as a gimmick! He definitely has a set of pipes on him!

What do U think?? Will U keep an eye out for Lin Yu-chun's debut album??

    hated Whitney for BUTCHERING Dolly's beautiful song, and don't care for this copycat karaoke version either - seriously - this is ALL it takes to get a record deal nowadays? goddamn sad!!!

    His breathing is messed up in places, but good god, the man is talented.

    Hell's Bells! God love her, Whitney only wishes she could sound that good again!

    She should have hired the kid to sing behind the curtain and she could lip-sync …..It might have saved her shiteous return tour.

    I have to say… there is nothing more i want then to add an asian whitney sound alike to my collection. Now, the only problem is where to file this one, next to William Chung or Clay Aiken in the "Worst mistakes in music history" Catalog I have created! Oh, hell, i will just file it next to Whitney Houston!

    At the least, the kids could hide behind the auditorium's curtains and sing while Whitney lip-syncs to her songs…

  17. 17

    Won't he look strange in Whitney's dresses & high-heels, not to mention Bobby Brown chasing after him…

  18. 18

    Amazing! BUT, he's an Asian dude who mimicks an African American female singer. I've got to think there's only so much mileage to that sort of "talent". At least he has a really cool haircut. Wait, that's not right!

  19. 19

    This shocked me as much as when i first heard Susan Boyle sing on Britain's got talent!

  20. 20

    they used a salad bowl to cut his hair

  21. 21

    as long as the album full with 90's love ballad sounds!! craving for slow ballad songs!!

  22. 22

    Wow, that was truly beautiful singing.
    Such a sweet kid….
    I wish him the best of luck!

  23. 23

    im sorry but that was horrible!!!! is this what you all really think good music is? if you all think that was good then i see why alot of ACTUALLY talented people go un-noticed, Suan Boyle was amazing, that woman has total vocal control and can hold a note, this kid was pitchy, and such a gimmick i'm sorry but epic fail!

  24. 24

    Re: lolagyrl – LOL!! I actually like that idea!

  25. 25

    I so wish this kid had come on American Idol! Imagine an asian kid walking in saying I'm going to sing Whitney and the judges all rolling their eyes and then that coming out of him!

  26. 26

    he killed it!

  27. Keixi says – reply to this
