Amazing 14 year old Australian
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRWeXR4fA0o&feature=fvsr Sorry if this is a repeat but I had never heard of him before. I Have Nothing
While his voice gave me chills, it's a bit disconcerting to hear a 14 year old boy sing a song that Ms. Houston sang about keeping a man in her arms, and having nothing if he leave her.
Maybe he's a gay teenager and that would be absolutely fine, and would make total sense that he choose this song.
He's real talented.
Didnt notice any gender words-caught up witgh his talent.
Neither did I but I was certainly picking up something luke.

Have a nice evening.
I listened to him sing "Loving You" (Minnie Ripperton). I looked forward to hear what he would do with Minnie's super-high note portion. To my surprise (and chagrin), he was just silent during that part, and let his background singers carry it (no high notes).
He is quite good. But why are ALL his songs hits made by women? Could it be because his voice hasn't broken yet? Or because those were his mother's favourite songs, and he sang them together with her?
I did a youtube search and he does sing more than just songs associated with women like Imagine and Forget You. But yes, covering diva songs seems to be his gimmick.
Here is Jack singing "And I am Telling You" from Dreamgirls.
Once again I am picking up a gay person vibe from him. I had my accountant co-worker, who is a lesbian lady, look at his clips and she also thinks he's a gay teenager. We both wondered if he'll still sing powerful female ballads when his voice changes during puberty.
He certainly has some powerful pipes.
This Korean homeless teenager singing opera (or related) is also interesting:
