If one thing’s for certain, it’s that SB19’s Stell “Heavenly Voice” Ajero will always deliver when it comes to the vocals.
We all know SB19 is talented. Sing, dance, or rap, the group can do it all. If their Pagsibol album and Back in the Zone online concert proved anything, it’s that the boys always deliver quality content. And while each member is truly talented, Stell has stood out particularly for his incredible singing abilities. The main vocalist of SB19 is not only a talented singer, but he’s also arguably one of the best vocalists in the industry right now.
Watch any of SB19’s performances, and you’ll know why Stell has the nickname “Heavenly Voice.” Aside from SB19’s songs, Stell has also shown off his S-tier vocals in his song covers on multiple occasions. So, get ready for your ears to be blessed as we list down 8 of Stell’s best song covers.
ALL BY MYSELF BY CELINE DION
When it was announced that each member was going to have their own solo performance during their Back in the Zone online concert, fans waited in anticipation to see what each member would do. For Stell, he sang All By Myself by Celine Dion, and wow did he understand the assignment. Stell sang the song as if the rent was due right after the performance and nailed the big climactic note near the end. His performance proved to be one of the most memorable of the concert.
SHALLOW BY LADY GAGA AND BRADLEY COOPER
Stell and Justin take on one of the biggest duets in recent years. Of course, Justin does an incredible job, nailing Bradley Cooper’s vocals effortlessly, but Stell really eats this one up and takes on Gaga’s parts with confidence and excellence. His high register meshes well with Justin’s lower tone.
HERE’S YOUR PERFECT BY JAMIE MILLER
What we like most about Stell’s cover is that he did it in a big room with an echo. So, when he delivered the soaring notes and swelling runs, it bounced through the room, making the cover sound even grander and better. Stell’s cover was so good that Jamie Miller himself reacted to and commented on the video and even asked Stell if they wanted to collab.
WHEN I LOOK AT YOU BY MILEY CYRUS
With this cover, Stell really said he can slay any song regardless of what position he is in. For his cover of Miley Cyrus’ When I Look At You, Stell performed the song in four different positions: sitting down, lying down, lying on his stomach, and planking with twists. And in each position he did, he delivered on the vocals and the emotions—all in the song’s original key.
A WHOLE NEW WORLD FROM ALADDIN
This pre-Go Up era performance sees Stell sing the iconic A Whole New World alongside Hongganda. While Stell is known for his high register, what this cover shows is his versatility as he also has a great lower register and is able to blend well with Hongganda’s high notes. Now, all we need is for Stell to be part of an official soundtrack for a Disney movie, yes? Yes.
WHEN I WAS YOUR MAN BY BRUNO MARS
Even before SB19 debuted, Stell was already showing that he was an amazing singer. In this cover of When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars, Stell shows his signature vocal range, clean high notes, and crisp voice quality.
HEART ATTACK BY DEMI LOVATO
So short, but so good, Stell had no right to eat this challenge up like that. When the #HeartAttack challenge was making its way around TikTok, Stell participated in the trend. It was a challenge right up his alley and he skated through the challenge without breaking a sweat. It was so good he even left Ken shook.
BAKIT BA IKAW BY MICHAEL PANGILINAN
SB19’s cover of Bakit Ba Ikaw by Michael Pangilinan stands out as one of the group’s best. The group is known for their high energy and upbeat performances, but this cover shows that they also can do well with slower and more emotional ballads. Each member does a great job and Stell really stands out in the performance as his sound suits the genre of the song. When the song reaches its climax, Stell lets it all out.
