This week’s Cover Star is 27 year old  J Rome. The Maryland native turns in a ridiculously good rendition of  Whitney Houston’s ‘I Have Nothing’: Check it out:

Wow! J really took it to CHURCH! It’s not often that male vocalists can tackle a track recorded by a female with the voice of a Whitney et al. Yet not only did he tackle it, he turned in an awesome performance, one in which really saw him put his own stamp on it.

Putting aside the fact that he wasn’t looking into the camera (!), Riko gave an awesome rendition of the song (which believe it or not has grown on me), really taking it to church towards the end. Having checked out more of his videos, Riko has definitely been blessed with some serious vocals!

While I would have preferred Ms. Felicity looked at the screen while singing (eye-contact is very important), there’s no doubt she did a great job! Raw, emotive and an overall solid vocal, make this cover a winner.
