Below is the link of my cover.

    Your sound is very breathy in as in you are using too much air to phonate. This means you need to get better diaphragmatic support. Ken has a great video on this and it will help you understand what needs to be done.

    Hi huduvudu, u mean leaking out too much air right for the term "breathy"?
    Is the articulation alright?

    No, I mean that you are using too much air to phonate. Diaphragmatic support is a way to hold back how much air that you are using to phonate. This helps protect your vocal folds from drying out, which can lead to other problems the least of which is hoarseness. This might not be much of a problem for you now, but if you do a lot of practicing or singing in the future it can cause real problems. Also once you learn how to cope with less air to phonate your singing will come a lot easier for you.

    Hey. Other than what HuduVudu said, I'd like to mention that I think you have talent for singing, but you need some more practice and confidence. Some of the time you're right on key and other times you're off. I think you may have been a bit nervous? Keep working on it, my friend.

    By the way, let me know if you need me to translate anything for you.

    I will take note on the diaphragmatic support. I agree now does not have hoarsness yet as i dont sing everyday but do practice up to 6 hours each day im free. Thanks alot🙏

    Thanks for the encouragement, i will need to focus and practice more so probably nervous will be smaller extent.😅
