In the video above, Lin Yu Chun (aka Eric Lin) performs a Whitney Houston favorite on the Taiwanese singing competition show “One Million Star” one of Taiwan’s versions of American Idol.
OK, so this isn’t quite “Taiwanese American,” but this young man is Taiwanese and Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” is American… and together this combination is gathering a whole lot of steam on the internet. Even CNN has reported on this young sensation: Web Pulse: Has Taiwan found the new Susan Boyle?
Check it out. And once again, Taiwan makes it on the radar screen for something other than politics and computers! Enjoy!
