NO AUTO-TUNE TUESDAY: SASHA ALLEN

Most of you may know Sasha Allen from the fourth season of NBC's The Voice but I first heard of this phenomenal singer two years ago. After the legendary Whitney Houston passed away, there were tons and tons of fans paying tribute to Whitney by singing I Will Always Love You but no one, I mean NO ONE sang it like Sasha Allen. The first time I heard Sasha sing, I got chills and cried like a baby.

After watching the video, I had to know more about Sasha and I found out she wasn't new to the music industry. In fact, she was a background vocalist for Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Leona Lewis, and Usher. She also starred on Broadway. Fast forward two years later, and Sasha made a name for herself on The Voice in 2013; and I'm ashamed to say I didn't know she was on the show last season. Although she didn't win, a star was born (I guess the world saw and heard the talent I witnessed). Without further ado, listen to Sasha's rendition of I Will Always Love You, no auto-tune, just pure talent and a voice that will make you fall to your feet. I see you Sasha!

SEAN COMBS VERSUS JERMAINE DUPRI: BAD BOY IS SO SO DEF

I am a fan of both PUFF DADDY and JERMAINE DUPRI. I tried to be as objective and fair as I could and that’s why I didn’t do a BEST MALE RAPPER category. When it comes to THAT category, PUFFY has it on LOCK. You can’t compare anyone to BIGGIE (Bow Wow versus Biggie is laughable). Anyway, this countdown is based only on MUSIC because that is the foundation and where everything was built for BOTH JD and PUFFY. Enjoy!
