Progress, a contestant in the ongoing Nigerian Idol music show, is currently trending on the microblogging platform Twitter over his powerful rendition.
Progress wowed the judges and guests while performing ‘I’ll Always Love You’ by late American singer Whitney Houston.

The judges and audience stood in clapping ovation for Progress after his performance as they were left speechless.
Many Nigerians have described the performance as phenomenal, while some claimed he has a similar voice to the American singer.
