In the past years, videos of Filipino amateur singers have been making rounds in the internet. Because their videos often go viral, many of these amateur singers get so much more than their 15 minutes of fame. One of them, Aldrich Lloyd Talonding who sang Luther Vandross’ hit song “Dance with my Father”, was even invited to perform in the Ellen DeGeneres show.
Another Pinoy talent has become an internet sensation after singing the same song.
Netizen Evie Malabanan-Mendoza shared a video of a man without arms singing “Dance with my Father” in her Facebook account. Despite his physical condition, the man, who held the microphone using his foot, delivered a soulful rendition of the emotional song.
The touching video has almost 1 million views and has been shared more than 68,000 times on Facebook. Moreover, it has also been featured in several blogs. Many netizens commented that the man, although differently abled, was blessed with an incredible talent that truly inspires people.
