This fan-made video puts Ningning’s and Bada’s covers of “Ave Maria” side by side so fans can enjoy hearing their voices together.

MYs believe that Ningning is well on her way to becoming a well-known vocal powerhouse just like Bada and other SM Entertainment artists before her! During a radio show appearance, Ningning said that it was an honor to be compared to Bada.

She also sang a snippet of S.E.S.’s “I’m Your Girl!”
