As for the other versions of the song, i dont think they are all that great. celine's is the most traditional but she doesnt even sound that great and only really sings at the very end. mariah's is very overrated in my opinion. her singing is pretty good, but nothing spectacular in the vocal arrangement and the music is very odd. with the organ that doesnt quite blend and it all starts to sound like porn music in the background. and christina, oh christina. talk about oversinging a song. shes up and down and all over the place. its crazy, plus that little strange r&b/gospel breakdown at the end is just weird.
It seems like this is the song that most people are really excited to hear. what do you guys think of the other versions? i dont think it will be difficult for whitney to top them. id say even if she doesnt go for it on every high note, her voice is just so much sweeter than the others, i still think itd be better.
