- A ‘beggar with a golden voice’ has gone viral on social media
- He practically nailed a Celine Dion and Bryan Adams hits with little effort
- However, some netizens doubted whether the man is really a beggar or just pretending to be
MANILA, Philippines – The advent of social media has helped many talented people catapult to accidental stardom, whether resulting in lifelong career or just in their 15 minutes of fame.
This latest discovery on Facebook is an uncanny candidate for the next social media sensation – he is a beggar and a street dweller.
However, his ‘golden voice’ has left netizens in awe and admiration after he belted the Celine Dion hit ‘To Love You More’ and the Bryan Adams classic ‘Rescue Me’ at a town fair in Iloilo a few days ago.
The clip with him singing with very little effort to the two classic tunes was uploaded on Facebook last January 28 by Pakz Abonado Formalidad.
In just two days, the post was viewed more than a million times with nearly 38,000 shares and over 74,000 reactions from netizens.
However, some doubted whether the man is really a beggar or just pretending to be to gain social media attention.
In response to the doubters, Pakz uploaded another video to prove the man is not disguising as a beggar. Caption on the post goes: “Ito para sa hindi naniniwala…… Dito sya sa tambayan nya…… At saka hindi sya naglilipsync.”
In another post,Pakz shares where the man spends his time. He also shared other videos of the man belting out other hit songs.
Well, anyway, looks like his singing prowess is worth every praise he received.
Watch him sing below:
