In a few weeks we'll get to feast our eyes on Lifetime's Whitney Houston biopic starring Yaya DaCosta with Deborah Cox recreating the diva's vocals. Deborah will no doubt do a fine job in covering Whit's music, but until that time we're just gonna feast our ears on this performance by Jazmine Sullivan of Whitney's song "I Have Nothing."
In this surprise showing for VIBE's V Sessions, Sullivan's honeyed vocals find a home on one of the standout hits from The Bodyguard soundtrack. Her rendition of "I Have Nothing" is pretty flawless and nowhere near the karaoke stylings of many a would-be American Idol/The Voice contestant. She follows the song's script but puts her own twist on the track with her voice coloring outside of the lines yet painting a beautiful picture.
She may be singing someone else's song here, but this just makes us look forward to her new album all the more. Thankfully, Jazmine Sullivan's Reality Show hits stores and streets next Tuesday, January 13th.
