He’s the man that people have called the new Susan Boyle, but we actually think that Taiwanese Lin Yu Chun could be the next Whitney Houston. When you consider that Whitney has made such a mess of her recent world tour and has been forced to cancel recent shows due to being hospitalised, there is a gap in the market for a big soul diva and we don’t think it matters that Lin is a man!
Lin Yu Chun has become an internet sensation after his rendition of Whitney Houston’s ‘I will always love you’ blew a panel of judges away on Taiwanese karaoke TV show Super Star Avenue. The above clip has had more than 1,600,000 views at the time this article was written.
The 24 year old is now favourite to win the £650,000 grand prize on the show and should he win, the unlikely star will also get a chance to release an album. We bet Simon Cowell is already queuing to sign him up!
