Not much needs to be said. Quite the BEST Voice/s (together) , I think I have ever heard.
The talent of this “Phillipina-Man” is “PHENOMENAL” & that is an understatement. He sings another beautiful song/hymn, called “The Prayer”(on You-Tube), and listening to it this morning absolutely made my day. THIS IS A SINGER!!, all my readers of eLanka, everywhere around the World. I have always loved Hawaiian, Samoan, & Music from the Islands, as well as “Country Music” , as everybody already knows, BUT there aren’t too many “Vocalists” who can sing like this guy can . He sings male/female “duets” with HIMSELF. I have NEVER seen anyone do that, and I have been “around” for 81 years now. Not only is/are the voices SUPERB, the “FEELING” he puts into “The Prayer” would have the most hard-hearted, reach for the tissues.
The lyrics of this song/prayer also, were written by Marcelito &, as usual, for the benefit of some readers, I will leave them with the “English” introductory lyrics to the song. To those who can, please google it on You-Tube and I promise you folks, you will enjoy it , as I have done.
I PRAY YOU’LL BE OUR EYES, AND WATCH US WHERE WE GO
AND HELP US TO BE WISE, IN TIMES THAT WE DON’T KNOW
LET THIS BE OUR PRAYER, WHEN WE LOSE OUR WAY
LEAD US TO THE PLACE, GUIDE US WITH YOUR GRACE
TO A PLACE WHERE WE’LL BE SAFE
I PRAY WE’LL FIND YOUR LIGHT, AND HOLD IT TO OUR HEARTS
WHEN STARS GO OUT EACH NIGHT/ Continues in prayer.
One of the most INCREDIBLE renditions of a song that I’ve been priviledged to see & hear.
