“American Idol” contestant Jessica Sanchez turned to Whitney Houston once again for Wednesday night’s episode, singing the late star’s “How Will I Know” from 1985 – 10 years before Jessica was born.
At just 16 years old, Jessica quickly became both a fan and judge favorite. Just one month ago, the half-Mexican and half-Filipino powerhouse wowed everyone with her rendition of Whitney’s “I Will Always Love You.”
Judge Jennifer Lopez told her, “You’re such a little girl, but there’s a woman up there at the same time. Your vocals just make everything go away for me. I listen to you and I can’t believe those vocals are coming out of that little body.”
