Whitney Houston Tribute: Random Girl Totally Kills I Will Always Love You!

| Filed under: Music MinuteInspirationWhitney Houston

Do you have five minutes?

Great, what you need to do is watch the video (above) and be COMPLETELY blown away by this young girl!

Not much is known here — apparently this is a random girl in a random grocery store that just happened to be demoing a product like most grocery stores do from time to time.

Except this time it was a karaoke machine, and one SERIOUS talent steps up to the mic to do a notoriously difficult song: Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You!!

Unbelievable! We have to watch it again!!

Who IS this girl??

    wow, that gave me goose bumps. Finally some talent!

  5. SKankeliminator says – reply to this


    Wow! So great! Excellent! So much better than those skanks on AI. She has that "it" factor. I remember a friend said of Mariah C. when she heard her sing as a young girl before she became famous, her sound like it had music to it. This girl's voice has the same effect. Make her a star

  6. Bryan says – reply to this


    WOW! i'm speechless!

  7. 7

    Omg, again…awesome!!

    I'm the baddest bitch here on perez. I drink haterade everyday all fucking day and even I'm saying this girl is good. Someone offer her a contract. Like right now.

    Re: rosebud99 – oh shut the fuck up.

    I'd say put her on Idol, but watching her get judged by Nicki Minaj would be a joke. X Factor would be better. Sure, Levato and Spears aren't exactly good singers, but Cowell knows how to judge talent. I'll take him over Minaj any day of the week. This girl would also slay on The Voice.

    The world has a cruel sense of humor when CARLY RAE JEPSEN has a music career and a girl with actual talent like this doesn't…

  29. luky says – reply to this


    filipino girls have the best voices. this girl should be a star. jennifer hudson can't even hit that note like whitney. and this girl killed it in a grocery store. amazing.

  33. gabriel says – reply to this


    Very nice…….. Cute too. She in NO WAY improved upon Whitney whoever made that comment. Definitely talented. I'loved her innocence

  34. 34

    amazing. even my 3 yr old disbaled baby girl came over stopped what she was doing and got this big smile in her face.

  35. hyacinth says – reply to this

  46. roz says – reply to this


    Hi perezhilton, you may check this out her first video hits in a million viewers.. Where she was discovered as random girl..

  47. Griswold says – reply to this


    she's zendee and she's really a diamond in the rough but TV networks here in the Phils. have taken notice of her already. found a bit of her story here:

  48. YvesArellano says – reply to this


    Perez Hilton's friend Charice (who used to be The Most Talented Girl according to Oprah) is the one modeling the karaoke mic this girl is using (it's Wow! Magic sing). By the way, her name is Zendee Rose Tenerefe from Philippines. People here are comparing her to Charice already. We'll see how far she can go.

  49. jk says – reply to this

  50. chestnut chez says – reply to this

  51. jamael says – reply to this

  52. leah says – reply to this

  53. IamSkyscraper says – reply to this

  54. AUGUST C FERNANDO says – reply to this


    Perez, that girl is ZENDEE ROSE TENEREFE, from General Santos City, Philippines, a towNmate of our boxing legend Manny Pacquiao. Zendee's video has gone viral and now has hearly 3,000,000 hits in YouTube. She has received feelers from Ellen G and some U.S.-based shows. Perhaps you could help her after her Ellen gig. Her talent must be nurtured. It's TREMENDOUS!

  55. AUGUST C FERNANDO says – reply to this


    Re: kustumpainter – She's not in Walmart. We don't have Walmart in the Philippines, hehehe! But that girl sure can outsing the best there is! God bless her always!

  56. Allan says – reply to this

  57. KKK says – reply to this


    this girl is from the Philippines! that's a Magic Sing microphone she's holding!

  58. 58

    Re: @v@ – I agree. I never ever say anyone is better than Whitney, but this girl actually took some of the notes above and beyond what Whitney did in the original. Incredible.

  59. Fav says – reply to this


    This girl is insanely talented. I've watched this video 6 times already and everytime my jaw is on the floor. This is a hard song to nail and she KIIIILLLLSSS it. I would buy her record in a heartbeat. This chick should be famous!

  60. Keith says – reply to this


    The girl isn't a random chick, she was on some foriegn version of xfactor or the voice, Zendee Rose from the philippines xfactor i think, too fab website has an report on it i think.

  61. Lori says – reply to this


    Absolutely amazing!!! Who is she?

  62. katie says – reply to this


    its really impressive!! i mean… its hard to find someone that can performe like that a song like this

  63. GG says – reply to this


    Re: rosebud99

    Agreed. I mean, there is no arguing her talent at all - the girl is awesome! But it's a little convenient that the one person who could sing like that not only had someone there to film it from the very beginning. Companies wanting to promote products do this kind of thing all the time. If it was all real then that's amazing, but I agree that my first thought would be that it was at least a little bit staged. Good luck to her though!

  64. A.M. says – reply to this


    Re: amrita – that' definitely not a mall in singapore… That's a mall in the Philippines, SM Megamall to be exact… Hehehe… And that girl is 100x% Filipina… Ha!!!

  65. Nicole M says – reply to this


    Alright everyone, we get the name and where she is from. Same comment over and over again. It's called READING.

  67. ezra says – reply to this


    she's from the philippines. :)

  68. Lolo says – reply to this


    i'm not drinking the kool-aid…as someone that comes from a singing family and has studied vocal art for some time….i'm not impressed …many of the notes are rushed and she DID NOT hit the iconic note …alot of it wasn't enunciated so she doesn't actually own the song the way whitney did. I'll give her a pass on that one b/c she is not be a native english speaker. besides that her voice doesn't seem to have the same power and/or passion in this clip that whitney's had. and i'm not a huge whitney fan but i do take the vocal quality when singing one of her songs very seriously. and hers seems immature at best

    Re: Lolo – You're not drinking the kool-aid but you've been hitting the haterade.

  70. shardraco says – reply to this


    she's actually Filipino and you can find her videos on YouTube. She's known to sing at these videoke mics in the mall and posts them on the net.

  71. Justin says – reply to this


    this is the Philippines! kareoke!

  72. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: LoloRe: Lolo – Sure, but remember that she's just goofing around in a mall on a karaoke, and would ramp it up in a formal stage setting. She has all the tools and then some; feel, and pitch and tone, along with the big one, inherent natural talent and ear; and with the mentoring Houston had, just imagine. This is a young girl.
    The bloggers here are tough, and look at the litmus test comments.

  73. Miguel says – reply to this


    Her name is Zendee Rose from the Philippines.

  74. kay says – reply to this


    Unfortunately, with all the talent that she may have .. she will never have her big break at least not in the U.S that is. If she was white or black she could probably make it but as a minority, unless your JLo ..you just don't appeal to the audiences.

    WOW! Seems like Whitney was channelled through her voice. Just beautiful and like Pollopicu says someone out there get her a contract. Keep going you are going to go far

  81. Woody says – reply to this


    she was on X Factor in the phillapines

  82. Franchesca says – reply to this


    Re: drdre – SOOO TRRUUUEE!! she is on Mariah Carey/Whitney Houston level, when she hits those high notes she took it further then Whitney and hit notes that only Mariah Carey has ever hit in the history of singing! I really hope someone goes to get her because her voice is absolutely flawless

  83. PrettySmile says – reply to this


    Christina must be in the background with the real mic…. no?? oh ok… WELL DAMN GIRL!!
