Top 16 Girls: Watch Bongi Mntambo performing ‘All The Man That I Need’
Bongi Mntambo performed ‘All The Man That I Need’ by Whitney Houston.
Originally recorded in 1982 by Linda Clifford (then titled ‘All The Man I Need’), the New York Times hailed this song as an “experience of sexual hero worship.” This was after the tune was delivered to Clive Davis at Arista Records, who bequeathed it to his biggest artist at the time, Whitney Houston. Released in 1990, the track became Houston’s ninth Billboard number one and earned her a nomination for Best Vocal Performance, Female at the 1992 Grammys. Fun fact: the sax solo? That’s Kenny G!
Bongi knows we want those power vocals and she delivered with an epic cover of one of Whitney Houston’s most classic, challenging and recognizable bops.
The gorgeous Bongi poured her heart and soul into ‘All The Man That I Need’ delivering soul-stirring vocals on-a-par with Queen Whitney herself.
