So we have just listened to the original song by Whitney Houston. In the writing above, it says that someone else recorded this song too. May songs are copied by different people if they are good. 

Listen to the clip below by Brendan Reilly. It is the same song but do you spot any differences at the start?

 Finally, listen to this song. The first version is the original by Louis Armstrong.

He was an  American trumpeter, composer, vocalist, and actor who was among the most influential figures in jazz. His career spanned five decades, from the 1920s to the 1960s, and different eras in the history of jazz.[3]

Again, this song has been copied many times. This is another version of the song by anther famous musician and singer. Listen to it carefully and think about how it is different to the other version. I have put a template on Seesaw for you. Listen to the instructions when you get there.
