A video of a "random girl" singing Jennifer Holliday's hit "And I Am Telling You (I'm Not Going)" in a mall has gone viral in social networking site Facebook.
YouTube user youngjay0918 uploaded the video last July 28, after coming across the girl at SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City. To date, the video gained more than 700,000 views.
So who's the girl having that extremely powerful voice? With some little research, I found out her name is Zendee Rose Tenerefe, a 21-year-old native of General Santos City. She's been on YouTube since August 15 of last year, and has uploaded a couple of videos on her channel.
Her videos include covers of different songs including Jessie J's "Laserlight" and "Mamma Knows Best," Toni Braxton's "Unbreak My Heart," Rihanna's "California King Bed" and "We Found Love," Lady Gaga's "Edge of Glory" and more.
Aside from the video taken at SM Megamall, she also has videos at the SM North EDSA singing Celine Dion's "All By Myself," Mariah Carey's "Love Takes Time," and Fantasia Barrino's "I Believe."
Her other videos also showed her performances in different bars and restaurants in General Santos City and Metro Manila.
Expressing her gratitude, Zendee commented, thanking the user who uploaded and those who liked the video.
