Saving All Their Love: Five Whitney Houston Tribute Clips That Are “So Emotional”

 

A little lady with a big voice, Aliyah Kolf from Holland’s Got Talent, sings “I Have Nothing” even though she is obviously everything.

 

Taiwanese singing sensation Lin Chu Yun is about as far away from New Jersey-born Houston as you can get, but his performance of “I Will Always Love You” on Ellen transcends age and borders.

 

We think everyone can agree that grandmas doing anything is automatically the best, but take some grannies doin’ herr and lip-synching to Whitney’s “I”m Every Woman” and try not to explode from the sheer awesomeness of it.

 


This six-year-old girl can’t even speak English but music is the universal language and little Amy is fluent in Whitney. Homegirl sings “Saving All My Love for You.”

 

This is a decidedly more somber take on Whtiney’s usually ebullient “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” but Jake and Lee Newton give the tune a kind of haunting beauty. And it doesn’t hurt that Jake’s a certified hottie, either.

      I wish y’all included Matt Alber on your list especially since he’s gay and did an AH-MAZING cover of I Wanna Dance With Somebody as well and is donating the funds for the song being bought to Larkin Street Youth Services (http://www.larkinstreetyouth.org) in San Francisco! http://youtu.be/O0T5T5ymA64?hd=1! iTunes – https://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Ftinyurl.com%2Fblrb7x4&session_token=4SBAMHeSr4RYUXAZnllakQRvt6t8MTM0NDk4MTc4M0AxMzQ0ODk1Mzgz, CDBaby – p://www.cdbaby.com/mattalber3

      @TheBippi: The Matt Barber tribute was haunting and moving. It breathed new life into the lyrics. He also did the performance the day after she died, according to the post date, so he must have been in a very emotional state. Thanks for mentioning. My partner and I really love his music and voice. We’re going to by the single on iTunes.
