A pregnant woman absolutely nails Whitney Houston’s ‘I Have Nothing’ in this clip from ‘X-Factor Ukraine.’ She gives a flawless performance for the judges and audience while dressed in a long black evening gown with a baby bump.
The judges have no idea what to make of this act before it begins. At the beginning of the song, they can be seen making a few faces at each other. As the opening chords of the ballad begin to play, the singing mother-to-be smiles confidently at them.
The camera pans out to show audience members who appear to be worried about the woman. She ignores the initial reaction and begins singing verse one. Everyone’s expressions begin to change as they are taken by her tone and pitch.
In the chorus, the song becomes more intense, and she begins belting out the powerful lyrics, ‘Don’t walk away from me!’ The audience responds by applauding, and by the second chorus, they are on their feet.
Even the judges recognize the talent and spectacle of this outstanding performance. It demonstrates the power of a pregnant woman. While she is finishing the last line, one of the judges approaches her and hugs her! It’s a lovely and inspiring video.
“I Have Nothing” is a ballad written by David Foster and Linda Thompson for the 1992 film, The Bodyguard starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. The tune is notorious on reality talent shows as one of the hardest to perform correctly. Judges have advised many aspiring singers not to try Whitney’s iconic song.
However, this woman is determined to deliver an outstanding performance. She does just that, and the response is overwhelming. The studio is filled with love and admiration for the mother and her accomplishment.
