Occurred on May 23, 2019 / Durban, South Africa Info from Licensor: "On May 23rd I went to Durban, South Africa on a work-related trip and hailed an Uber.
The driver, Menzi Mngoma, and I got chatting and I soon discovered that he is in fact an Opera singer who, due to lack of opportunities in South Africa, became an Uber driver to support his family.
Not letting the unique opportunity pass me by, I asked Menzi if he would mind singing for me.
He gladly obliged and as he started to sing, I was immediately blown away.
I was completely gobsmacked.
I got instant goosebumps!
The experience was completely surreal.
I asked his permission to film him singing.
In our subsequent conversation, I repeatedly said to him “There must be someone who can help you!” When Menzi dropped me back at the airport, I told him to never give up on his dreams and that he needs to put positive energy out into the universe and something will come.
I asked his permission to post the video.
Little did I know that with my post and simple request, for someone to help to make this Man's dream come true I would be that “someone” that would help to expose his natural talent.
The response has been overwhelming.
Menzi has been offered some wonderful opportunities which we hope will lead to him realizing his dream of performing on stage internationally."
