A video of a random girl singing Whitney Houston’s timeless hit “I Will Always Love You” at a mall karaoke machine is going viral, and it’s easy to see why.

She’s awesome. Some have speculated that she MUST be lip-synching to sound that good, but she’s not … nor is she as totally “random” as it may seem.

The young woman is Zendee Rose, a former contestant on the Philippines’ version of The X Factor. Amazingly, these pipes didn’t get her past Boot Camp:

Whitney would be proud. So would Ellen DeGeneres, who is probably on the phone as we speak trying to track down Zendee and book her for next week.
