Forget about Johnoy Danao and all those other insanely gifted performers. It doesn’t take much bravery to display your singing prowess when you actually have a lot of it to go around. These next 8 performers dared when everyone around them with a working pair of ears told them they shouldn’t, and for that, we laugh not at them, but with them, as they rack up more fans than 99% of anyone reading this right now could even know what to do with.

Jhay R Santos, “Grenade”[/buffer]
Rico: Bayanihan at its finest. Two people collaborate, breathing a new kind of life into Bruno Mars’ “Grenade.” Ms. Cornejo shines thanks to her vibrant personality, beautiful singing voice, and laughter, while Jhay R Santos brings it with his excited commentary, high notes, and impromptu rap.
You even have someone else volunteering to backup dance. This is such a perfect example of how working together can produce such a great result, a lesson that we all should keep in mind as we face down the country’s many problems.
Kel: In his other video, Jhay R Santos was practically begging Oprah and Ellen to take notice of his “pure talent.” One has to wonder if he had “pure intentions” to go along with it, as he tends to murder any song he manages to get his hands on, but none of us can look away. It helps that in his cover of “Grenade,” he had a cousin who was actually talented and a jaw-dropping interpretative dancer in the background to back him up.
Asian Bieber, “Baby”[buffer by=”15px”]
Kel: More than anything else, I’m thoroughly disappointed that he didn’t do Ludacris’s rap. I mean, how hard could it have been? He was already doing soooo well…
Rico: The message is clear here: you can achieve anything as long as you concentrate enough. Sometimes we need to devote our entire being into a song, like Justin Bieber’s “Baby”, closing our eyes in pure bliss as we falsetto our way through. Why bother rapping as well, when you can showcase your awesome beatboxing skills?[/buffer] [text_image img=”https://8list.ph/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/youtube-pinoy-cover-artist-number-7.png” width=”100%” type=”subheading”]7.[/text_image] [buffer by=”15px 0 0 0"]
