There are few artists who have been covered as often or as well as Justin Bieber. The teen singing sensation, who himself got his first start recording home-made videos on YouTube, has spawned a whole new generation of artists who are breathing new life into his well-loved pop tracks.

Belting out Bieber’s ‘Baby’ with effortless magnitude, Charice’s cover of the pop smash, recorded casually in what looks like a hotel room, showcases the Filipino songstress’ masterful delivery. Who needs swag when you’ve got pipes like this?
