Mariah Carey is an internationally-renowned superstar who possesses one of the most powerful singing voices on the planet. Mariah is responsible for numerous hit songs such as “Touch My Body,” “Heartbreaker,” “We Belong Together,” “Love Takes Time,” “Fantasy,” the list goes on and on.
But did you know that a Filipino possesses the same powerful voice that has garnered Mariah Carey so much mainstream success?
Meet Kenny Dhave Carey, a young man with the voice of a pop superstar. Videos of Kenny singing have gone viral and people can’t seem to shake off how eerily similar his singing voice is to that of Mariah Carey.
Leonado R. Santos, the Facebook user who uploaded the videos of Kenny singing thought that he was just lip-syncing. Eventually, Leonado realized that what he was hearing was actually Kenny’s voice. He even tagged the “Unkabogable” star Vice Ganda in the hopes that Kenny could be granted a gust spot on the comedian/host’s nighttime show, Gandang Gabi Vice (GGV).
In the videos, it’s hard to deny that Kenny Dhave really has Mariah’s voice. Despite the eerie resemblance, it’s not perfect. There are a few moments wherein he made a few pitch and intonation errors. Understandable, as he is only human and humans make mistakes.
