Internet sensation who is attracting fans with her karaoke rendition of “I Will Always Love You”  is well known enough to have a following. Zendee Rose Tenerefe is a 21-year-old from the Philippines with almost 5,000 fans on this Facebook page. She posted about her video and the viral attention it was attracting in the United States. She gives a “big thanks” to all Americans and all Filipinos worldwide.

A karaoke machine in the middle of a department store in Singapore doesn’t seem like a hotbed for musical talent. But this teenage girl captured on video covering Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” is a startling exception.

There in front of the booze and a man mopping the floor, the young girl does a masterful job on a song made famous by one of history’s great singing talents. (And yes, we know it’s Dolly Parton’s song, but it’s safe to say the girl is channeling Houston.)

The video (spotted on The Daily What) has 450,000+ views on YouTube and commenters were urging someone, anyone, to sign the girl to a recording deal. And they did!

“That was beautiful. She nailed the notes and put her own flavor to it. I feel like Randy Jackson critiquing her. She needs to get found,” writes justpnay.

“I am in love! This sweet youngling absolutely DESTROYS Justin Bieber! Everyone do your part to spread and share this to start the process of perhaps a great career for you great talent,” says headslo.

In the age of “American Idol” and “X Factor” and every other televised talent competition aimed at finding the next big thing, it’s nice to know someone can just pick up a mic in a grocery store and wow the world.
