Get The Blood Rushing!

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Jessica Sanchez. Apart from lending a song to charity compilation Heartbeart Of Home, the 18-year-old has been largely absent from the music scene. Which is a shame, because she has an amazing voice — as she ably demonstrates in a new YouTube video.

Jessica uploaded an interpretation of Ariana Grande‘s “Tattooed Heart” — a highlight from Yours Truly — this morning (January 31) and showcases the vocal skill that took her so far on American Idol. She also looks cute as a button in her tank top and explains that she cover the song for lovers on Valentine’s Day. Aww. Watch her in action up top.

Do you prefer Jessica’s cover or Ariana’s original version? You be the judge in the comments below.

Get an eyeful of even more pop music coverage, from artist interviews to exclusive performances, on Idolator’s YouTube channel.

    Saying she has been “absent from the music scene” is entirely incorrect. She has had a packed schedule since Idol ended. The World is much bigger than the USA.

    “Heartbeat of Home” is not a charity compilation. It is the soundtrack to the new stage production, which is the sequel to Riverdance. She sang the lead singe and a soon-to-be-released duet on that album.

    Hearbeat of Home and Jessica donated profits from the single for Phillipine relief.

  3. Just posting to thank Odily for clarifying the article. I agree, Jessica had just finished a packed back to back schedule. Sang the US Nat’l Anthem and the Phil NA ( w/c she had to learn as she does not speak the language ) for Manny Pacquaio Fight , did a Mission Trip to the Philippines for Starkey Foundation , fitting hearing aids to kids & adults.

  4. Then turned around for a Special New Year’s Eve Concert , also in Manila..

    Even though Jessica Sanchez is a great singer I definitely prefer Ariana Grande’s Version because Ariana has more of a sweet voice and Jess has more of a rusky voice.

    I pick ariana, even tho Jess is an amazing singer, I perfer ariana’s.

    I love her voice soooo much but I have to go with my idol’s version. Her voice is wayyyyyyy too strong for the song, and I felt like she was overdoing it…

  8. Samantha

    btw my idol is ARIANA GRANDE!!!!!!! I LOVE YOUUUUUU

    I don’t like either one of them. They both over sing and they both have no talent. So yeah!
