Jessie J has been competing as a contestant in a Chinese singing competition, however, her fans are just finding out about it now.

The singer posted a series of videos and photos of her singing a cover of Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing.” At the end of the post of her performance for Singer 18, she wrote, “Representing the UK everywhere I go.”

*As tears fall down my face* Whitney Houston… 👑 You are the reason I started to sing. When I heard I will always love you when I was 4 years old. My life changed forever. You are everything. The best to ever do it. No one can ever come close. More than anything, I hope I did you proud. 🌹 Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me believe in me. It’s taken me 25 years to find the courage to sing this whole song on stage. It was one of the most unforgettable and special moments of my life… It happened because of you. I love this song, and I will always love you. ❤️ Thank you to everyone watching this, and sharing it and showing my voice love. It’s all it’s ever been about and it’s all it will only ever be about for me. The music, the feeling, the songs and the singing. ❤️ Just an Essex girl with a dream. Representing the UK everywhere I go. 🇬🇧 🇨🇳
