Keri Hilson Is No Whitney
Posted by Videoson 05/19/2011 at 9:46 AM
Whitney Houston’s powerful voice has been a source of inspiration to many of us, singers and non-singers (ahem) alike, so it’s likely that many young female artists would also cite her as a role model. Keri Hilson took on the challenge of performing one of Houston’s legendary tracks, “I Have Nothing” from 1993′s The Bodyguard, during a tribute to songwriter David Foster at the BMI Pop Music Awards on Tuesday. Is there a polite way to say this? No? Okay then: Nice try Keri, but you have nothing, NOTHING on Ms. Houston.
Let’s revisit the classic, shall we? Complete with fabulous Cleopatra-style hair:
Get well soon, Whitney. The first step to recovery is not actually getting banned from Prince shows, the next is returning to the stage for a comeback tour. Just say the date and we’ll be there. [Rap-Up]
