One week after the late Luther Vandross‘ birthday, a video has gone viral of a Filipino boy named “La” singing an acoustic version of Vandross’ hit song “Dance with my Father”.

The boy can only be about 12-years-old but he is singing from the soul while he belts out this classic tear-jerker. TIP: Play the whole video because he really starts jamming near the end!

Who knew people were listening to ol’ Luther in the Philippines?

Did you get goosebumps? On a scale of 1-10, how did he do? Let us know in the comment box below.

  1. Movie fans have been privileged over the years
    to view some incredible movies regarding the
    great sport of boxing. Dick Vermeil is the new coach
    for the Eagles football team. Short movies are dainty to the mind, and in some cases
    the heart.

  2. Damn! This boy can sing! I got goosebumps listening to his beautiful soulful voice. If Luther were alive today this boy would be on stage with him right this moment. He is a tribute to Luther and his song. The boy deserves to be a star and should hopefully not go unnoticed.

    Pure and innocent! What an awesome testimony of a true musical gift given from God. It is obvious the passion that he felt in the song was real and not just for show. His gift will make room for him.

    Oh….such a sweet old soul. He was phenomenol!! I hope they allow his guitar player to accompany him as that gave it the purity. No lip syncing here. GREAT JOB young men!!!!
