I think Chrisette Michele is a great new artist but vocally wise she was underpowered for a huge ballad such as this. I understand that she's a tamed singer with very good vocal control but this was a Patti Labelle tribute. It really just showed that she had a limited vocal range. Still it's a nice performance but she failed to get the audience out of their seats. It sounded more like smooth jazz than the power house ballad that it is.
