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.
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.
