A blind girl from the Philippines has recently made waves on social media all over the world for having such a beautiful voice that she was able to perform an awesome rendition of a Whitney Houston song.
Elsie is blind but her voice is superb! What makes her performance even impressive is that she actually doesn’t know how to speak English, having spent most of her life and home. She had no formal education due to her condition yet she is able to sing Whitney Houston songs, her favorites, as if she knows perfect English.
According to Darrell Burnett who uploaded the video, Elsie learned how to sing these songs perfectly just by listening to recordings. And while she lives in a small fishing village in the Philippines, the world has heard her beautiful voice, thanks to Burnett’s video.
This is Elsie again with another song. She is blind since birth, cannot speak English but she memorized these songs and sings like an angel!
She has never been to school, never learned English. She listens to songs and learns the song. She has one of the most Amazing voices I have ever heard. She lives in a small fishing village in the Philippines.
Since it was uploaded some 2 weeks ago, the video has reached over 17 million people – and everyone was impressed with Elsie and her angelic voice.
Some are saying that they believe she’s the reincarnation of Whitney Houston; though that’s not possible as at some point in time, they had lived together on Earth since she looks like she’s in her 30s while Whitney passed in 2012.
“Wow! Brought tears to my eyes! Beautiful young lady with an amazing gift. Thank you for blessing the world with this video! Presume competence! She’s beautiful!” one netizen wrote.
This is Elsie she is totally blind. She has never been to school, never learned English. She listens to songs and learns the song. She has one of the most Amazing voices I have ever heard. She lives in a small fishing village in the Philippines

Councilor Fakes Getting Caught by Cops for Sweet Proposal That Surprised His GF
A councilor fakes getting caught by cops for a sweet proposal that surprised his girlfriend. And we can also call him the best actor, huh?
When cops arrived at the house of City Councilor Vinchy Aggabao of Santiago City, Cagayan Valley, Philippines, he and his family were puzzled why he was being investigated. The cop said he’s from “the region” and that they have to investigate the councilor’s vehicle after it was involved in something the previous night.
The cop also looked for the councilor’s wife (his girlfriend, actually), Irene, to inform her that they would have to pick up Vinchy for questioning. They also insist on checking his car. Vinchy agreed, but with anger in his voice. How dare these cops accuse him of something? LOL. But it’s all just drama, actually…
To prove that he’s innocent, Vinchy led Irene and the cops to the vehicle to show them that there’s nothing hidden inside that would incriminate him to whatever it is the cops are looking for. But to her surprise, the back of Vinchy’s car was filled with dozens of flowers, some gifts, some of their couple photos, and “Marry Me Irene” in gold letters. Awwww.
She was so scared that there’s something bad going to happen that Irene didn’t know how to react when she saw the surprise. It turned out that almost everyone was in on the surprise as many were already taking a video and smiling even before the ‘big reveal’. Some of their family members were also bring long-stemmed roses and some fruits as gifts for the couple.
Everyone cheered as Irene accepted the ring from Vinchy! What a sweet moment.
The videographers later clarified that the couple actually live together. No quarantine violations were made because the immediate family members seen in the video also lived in the same house.
Check out this sweet proposal:

Amid the pandemic, a lot of weddings and various events have been postponed. Wedding proposals might be challenging to do but just like Vinchy you can be creative.
Here’s a reminder: Don’t violate quarantine restrictions in your area. Make sure to still follow the rules, because the cops won’t be supportive of your declarations of love if you are violating the law.
Flash mobs are a no-no. This is a good time for private, intimate proposals with your sweetheart and her immediate family. Don’t forget to wear a mask and still practice social distancing.
Vlogger Gives Brand-New Helmet to Generous Lalamove Rider
A vlogger gives a brand-new helmet to the generous Lalamove rider who gave him money for gas. The guy did not have a lot of cash as he had only done his first delivery, but he still shared some money to the rider! For that, he got a full-faced helmet from the vlogger.
A Good Prank
A lot of vloggers these days do pranks on innocent people, some of which go beyond the line and are already hurtful or too embarrassing. Many just do it for the laughs. There are even some who cost their victims a lot of money, such as pranking delivery riders or online sellers with fake orders.
But one vlogger earned praise for the good prank he played on a Lalamove delivery rider.
In a video posted by vlogger “Team Katagumpay” on his Facebook page, the Lalamove delivery rider hesitated at first when he tried asking for some money for gas, under the guise that he lost his wallet and had needed to buy gas because he had a helmet to deliver to his customer.
But it turned out the Lalamove delivery rider only hesitated because he did not have much money. He had just come from his first delivery of the day. Naturally, he still didn’t have much cash yet. But he was ready to part with Php50.
The vlogger understood his hesitation and still admired his will to share what he had. And when the Lalamove delivery rider smiled, despite knowing he won’t ever get his money back, the vlogger knew he picked the right guy.
He drove off but quickly made a U-turn to go back to where the rider’s spot. This time, he returned the money and gave him the surprise. It’s wonderful to see the rider smiling from ear to ear with this beautiful crash helmet he received from the vlogger! Check this out:
What’s a Crash Helmet?
A crash helmet is a full-faced helmet designed for motorcycle riders but are also used by race car drivers. The primary goal of a motorcycle helmet is motorcycle safety, protecting the rider’s head during impact.

The viral video would reach Ryan Bang, an endorser for Fudgee Barr. The comedian immediately offered to help the boys settle their Fudgee Barr problem by offering them boxes and boxes of the popular snack item, in all flavors they could try! Wow.
Coordinating with video uploader Jwel Escoba, Ryan was able to give the boys the boxes of snacks. They also got to take photos with the comedian. Cool!
