Ashanti Covers Whitney Houston



Okay, so everyone is talking about Ashanti covering Whitney Houston's songs with David Foster. Above is the footage of Ashanti singing "I Have Nothing," and "I Will Always Love You." All I kept hearing was how terrible the performance was so I decided to go look it up on YouTube.  First off, her performance of "I Have Nothing" was actually pretty good. "I Will Always Love You," on the other hand, was not so great. Still, there is no need to say that the performances were "terrible" or that your "ears were bleeding" because I don't think you could do any better. I think most people are just trying to jump on the bandwagon and talk bad about the video just because everyone else is doing so. Be yourselves guys! Don't just say what everyone else is saying. Oh, and if I hear one more thing about Charice being better than Whitney Houston, Ashanti, and every other singer in the world I'm going to freak out. Yes, Charice is an amazing singer, but no, she is not the greatest singer in the world, and to say that she sings the song better than Whitney Houston is just plain disrespectful.

LoL at the previous comment. No one is jumping on any bandwagon...if they think she sounded bad,thats their opinion. And who is Charice?

Charice Pempengco is a young singer that became famous after she performed on Ellen. She always covers this song. I don't think Ashanti did bad on the first song either. People are just overreacting

I think Jay P is right. Ashanti was good on the first song. not on the second. Charice is still better but stop making her out to be the most amazing vocalist

She sounds amazing on the first cover. She sounds pretty good on the second one also, her ability to hit those high notes shocked a lot of people I'm sure. She does it effortlessly, and you can all say what you want, but I'd like to see some of these other singers get up there and sing this. Katy Perry, Rihanna, Ciara, Keri Hilson, Kelly Rowland, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga <- - they could never. They wouldn't even come close to sounded as good as Ashanti did.

NO CHARICE FAN WOULD EVER SAY THAT SHE'S BETTER THAN WHITNEY HOUSTON. However, non-Charice fans do say that Charice is way too much better belting out a WH song than Ashanti. That's a fact. I'm not dissing Ashanti, but this type of song is really not for her. Let's all blame David Foster for this not Ashanti.

I have to agree with the two above me. She does sing it pretty well, Charlie is better (but not better than Whitney) and this is really all David Fosters fault.

Well this proves that you don't know music. This was a terrible performance and Charice is the greatest singer in the world.

^^...Jay P didn't say this was amazing. He said the first one was good and it was. Don't call him out on his own blog. And the fact that you think Charice is the best singer ever is just a ridiculous statement. Leave Jay alone.

Ashanti did a great job...i didn't even expect that she could hit high notes like a real Diva...but i agree Charice can do it better but No one could ever beat the legendary Whitney Houston
