Many of our countrymen resort to stealing and committing other forms of crime when trying to raise money for their needs or wants. This poor boy from Laguna defied the default with what he did.
A video showing young Tristan Dynel Gogit singing songs for strangers at a Robinson’s Mall in Sta. Rosa, Laguna to raise funds has become viral.
One of the boy’s kidneys has been damaged and needs medication and continuous dialysis in order to help his lone kidney clean up his blood. Tristan’s parents are separated and both of them have their own families now. The boy is left alone to care for his two younger siblings.
Since his parents cannot find a time for him, Tristan goes to the hospital alone with the small amount of money he earns from singing songs to strangers.
According to Elisa Regalario Secillano, she recalled seeing the boy approaching them and offering to sing a song in exchange for a small amount of cash.

Elisa and her friends decided to ignore the boy’s plea, thinking that it was all just a scam. However, one of her friends recognized that the boy was also singing to another group at the mall’s food court.
The group of friends ended up helping the boy, who only asked for a bottle of Omega Pain Killer in exchange for singing a song during their second encounter.
Many viewers of the video have commented that the boy had a real talent in singing despite not having proper training from a singing coach. They also commended the boy for working hard for his needs and for not quitting on life despite his difficulties at such a young age. -Kami Media
