To give us a break from the daily grind...
From The Sun:
THIS young lad is threatening to steal Susan Boyle's crown as this year's most unexpected musical superstar.
... Lin Yu Chun blew away a panel of judges on Taiwanese singing competition Super Star Avenue with this rousing rendition of Whitney Houston's 'I Will Always Love You'....

Hey, awesome performance! I would like to hear another song. I find it a little strange he is singing a woman's song.Posted by: Eileen at April 7, 2010 7:24 PM
I don't care if a boy sings a woman's song since women sing songs originally written by and for men without anyone batting an eye. I just don't bother with all of this "how well can you sing someone else's pop song" business. Everyone who wins on one of these shows sounds exactly the same to me. You take a Johnny Cash or a Björk or a Michael Stipe and you realize that they'd NEVER succeed on these shows because of their distinctive voices. But now ask me if I'd rather listen to one of them or to Carrie Underwood.Posted by: bmmg39 at April 7, 2010 7:33 PM
I, too, tend toward distinctive voices. But it is no small accomplishment for this young man to sing a difficult song and compete with a standard as high as Whitney Houston. Would love to hear more from him.Posted by: Cristy at April 8, 2010 5:57 AM
