In this clip from ‘X-Factor Ukraine,’ a pregnant woman absolutely nails Whitney Houston’s ‘I Have Nothing.’ Wearing a long black evening gown complete with a baby bump, she delivers a flawless performance for the judges and audience.
The judges don’t know what to make of this act before she begins. They are seen making a few faces at each other at the song’s start. The singing mother-to-be smiles confidently at them as the opening chords play to the ballad.
The camera shows audience members who seem to have a look of concern for the woman. She is unfazed by the initial response and begins singing verse one. Everyone’s expressions start to change as they are delighted by her tone and pitch.
The song builds intensity at the chorus, and she begins belting out the powerful lyrics, ‘Don’t walk away from me!’ The audience responds by applauding, and they are on their feet by the second chorus.
Even the judges acknowledge the talent and spectacle of this remarkable performance. It shows the power of a mother-to-be on full display. One judge walks up to her while finishing the last line and hugs her! It is a beautiful and inspiring video.
“I Have Nothing” is a ballad written by David Foster and Linda Thompson for the 1992 film, The Bodyguard starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. The tune is notorious on reality talent shows as one of the hardest to perform correctly. Judges have advised many aspiring singers not to try Whitney’s iconic song.
However, this woman is determined to deliver an outstanding performance. She does just that, and the response is overwhelming. The studio is filled with love and admiration for the mother and her accomplishment.
