Watch: JoJo & Tori Kelly Team for Cover of Whitney Houston & Mariah Carey’s ‘When You Believe’

Published: Tuesday 24th Mar 2020 by Rashad

As diva duets go, none stand toe to toe with ‘When You Believe,’ the powerhouse union of two of music history’s most celebrated female vocalists – Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey.

Released in 1998, the Babyface-produced gem – lifted from Disney’s ‘The Prince Of Egypt’ soundtrack – has not only stood the test of time but often comes as the ultimate test of ability for a slew of singers that followed.

Among today’s crop of songstresses, few would dare attempt a cover of the Academy Award-winning tune without the assistance of autotune and backing track.  Yet, just a month after showing off her vocal prowess on the song alongside Ariana Grande (click here to watch), Tori Kelly‘s come back to do it again – this time bringing along fellow powerhouse JoJo.

Listen inside:

Start at 35:00:

After rocking out with a live virtual concert (as many artists are doing in the wake of imposed social distancing due to coronavirus), Kelly surprised viewers with a special guest – JoJo.  Calls have long rang for the divas to duet and yesterday fans were treated to a live performance of the two tackling ‘Believe.’

We can only hope the positive response inspires them to collaborate more in the future.

      I can help with this one because I know her…When it looked like her star was about to sky rocket, she was pressured to take the typical “pop route” of s** it up, gimmick it up, and push a message that she didn’t feel was true to herself. She was conflicted, and from that struggle came her inspirational gospel-esque album ‘Hiding Place’. She’s pushing forward on her own terms and is happy with the music she is creating and being herself. Not everyone is desperate for stardom and fame. Not everyone is willing to sell their soul.

    Mariah and Whitney would be proud – now lets get them on stage to hear that BRIDGE done together.
