    holy hell that kid is AMAZING. He actually brought a tear to my eye...not many people can put such emotion into song and do it so well, especially when it`s not in their primary language.

    I hope he`s invited to do a US tour with that talent of his, he`s incredible :)

    Saw this late last night, Before it was posted.

    If you close your eyes, It really does sound a lot like Whitney.

    Chances are it won`t last though, Once the puberty hormones kick in this kids voice will likely tank.

    @skaterboy: there`s a good chance he has a several-octave voice range. every hear of freddy mercury? guy had a 5- octave range, and could easily go from a baritone to a soprano range in the same song.(and did)

    Wow. That was amazing. I got shivers. Purely awesome! Must have been doubly hard given that in Cantonese/Mandarin (and even Japanese and I think most other Asian languages) there are no "L" sounds so it`s hard for them to form words with "L" in them.

    Gorgeous voice.

    Girliemutant - What`s your peeve? Ms. Parton WROTE the song! And she recorded it well before Whitney. It`s Dolly Parton`s song...so what "peeve"?

    Wow. Given Witney`s craptacular performances here in Aussie recently, maybe she should bring this guy along. He`s great.

    whatev fuggly, take your stereotypical speaking elsewhere; this boy speaks the english in this song perfectly! In fact, if I am not looking at the video as it is playing I forget that it actually isn`t Whitney, and then am shocked when I scroll back up.

    Now, just to clear this up... are we 100% that it`s a dude, because frankly, I`m not convinced in the slightest.

    He was amazing. Very good, especially for not being his native language.
