Jade Burke is only 14 years old, but her cover of a Whitney Houston song belies her age.

On the Scottish teen’s YouTube page, you’ll find covers of songs by Sia, Lorde, and John Legend, but her cover of tearjerker “I Will Always Love You”—originally performed by Dolly Parton but popularized by Houston—will give you goosebumps. 

The video is from April, but it’s been making the rounds again, after being shared on Facebook by Seattle radio station 95.7 KJR-FM. 

Also of note: She wants to collaborate with Adele or Ed Sheeran or audition for Britain’s Got Talent. Ya know, after exams.
