LITTLE BIG SHOTS

This 12-year-old girl named Elha from the Philippines, absolutely annihilated Sia’s “Chandelier” on Steve Harvey’s Little Big Shots this past Sunday night. If I were to close my eyes, I would never imagine that this was a 12 year old singing this song. You check her out and tell me what you think. She’s the real deal!!!

FLASHBACK: “AND I’M TELLING YOU” – JENNIFER HOLLIDAY

I heard this song yesterday and it still blows me away. 56-year-old Jennifer Holliday sang “And I’m Telling You” on Broadway many years ago. Her breakout role in “Dreamgirls” earned the dynamic singer a Tony Award. I can recall seeing her perform this song on the Tony Awards the year that she won and I had never seen or heard anything like her before. This song has been covered by the likes of Jennifer Hudson and Whitney Houston but….none can top the original JENNIFER HOLLIDAY. She is currently starring on Broadway in the classic “Color Purple.”

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT…

WOW!!! Ali Caldwell closed out the night on “The Voice” yesterday and she did an amazing job. Her cover of “Without You” by Harry Nilsson generated a standing ovation from the audience and all four judges. This performance caused me to want to look at this video several times. She has a really big voice and amazingly a really looooooooooooooooooooong train on the gown she’s wearing. THIS IS A “MUST WATCH” VIDEO!!!!

DO IT ANYWAY!

Billy Gilman covered Martina McBride’s “Anyway” tonight on “The Voice”and did an awesome job. The lyrics were so poignant that I had to hear the song again. I listened to Martina’s version and it is so remarkable that I just had to post it. Check it out, especially the lyrics. If you don’t feel like listening…… “Do It Anyway”!!!!!

AT 12 YEARS OLD… SHE’S “DEFYING GRAVITY”

Once you listen to 12 year-old Beau Dermott on this episode of Britain’s Got Talent that aired Saturday night (April 9), you’ll definitely see why she’s “Defying Gravity”.  This little girl has a BIG FUTURE ahead of her.  She received a standing ovation from the entire crowd… and rightly so.

I AM

Ok, here is another one of those songs that I’ve fallen in love with.  For a while I thought it was being sung by Donnie McClurklin but this one is being sung by a gentleman named Jason Nelson.  The song is simply called “I AM”. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

2 Corinthians 10:17-18 NIV

But, “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”  For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.
