Ariana Grande Performs Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” At The White House: Watch

By: Mike Wass / March 7, 2014

Ariana Grande shared the stage with vocal heavyweights Jill Scott, Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monae and Melissa Etheridge as well as The Voice winner Tessanne Chin at last night’s (March 6) Women Of Soul: In Performance At The White House concert, which was hosted by President Obama and the First Lady.

The 20-year-old looked understandably nervous but delivered a competent if unspectacular version of Whitney Houston‘s classic ballad “I Have Nothing”. She sounded much more at home performing Yours Truly bop “Tattooed Heart” and later joined the other ladies for an entertaining rendition of Tina Turner‘s iconic jam “Proud Mary”. Watch all of Ari’s performances up top.
