LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- William Shatner is known for his legendary vocal interpretations – and on Wednesday night’s “Lopez Tonight,” the star will have the chance to show his chops alongside the Internet’s latest singing sensation.
Lin Yu Chun, 23, who has earned millions of YouTube views for his spellbinding take on Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” on Taiwan’s “Super Star Avenue,” will join Shatner on the ‘80s Bonnie Tyler classic, “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” The budding star has earned comparisons to Susan Boyle, who also emerged onto the world stage after showcasing a stunning voice on a foreign talent show, in her case, “Britain’s Got Talent.”
Beyond Shatner’s famous Priceline commercials, the former “Boston Legal” and “Star Trek” actor has released several albums over the years, including 2004’s Ben Folds-produced “Has Been.”
Additionally, in 1968, Shatner released his first album, “The Transformed Man,” which became a cult classic after he covered classic songs like The Beatles’ “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”
