How ‘AGT’ Star Marcelito Pomoy Is Giving Back During The COVID-19 Pandemic
Marcelito Pomoy, who made it to the finals of America’s Got Talent: The Champions earlier this year, has been giving back in a big way during the COVID-19 pandemic. The singer has been doing charity work in his home country of the Philippines.
Marcelito has documented his various acts of kindness on his Facebook page and YouTube channel. That includes distributing food and supplies, supporting local schools, and even building a house for an elderly woman.
Marcelito Pomoy Gives Back To The Philippines During COVID
Marcelito has been working hard in recent months to make sure the people of his country have access to food and supplies during the ongoing pandemic. In April, he helped deliver food to a community that was in complete lockdown.
Later, in May, the singer helped hand out baby essentials like milk and diapers from a pharmacy. “The Lord has given me so much blessings during America’s Got Talent,” Marcelito said in another vlog. “I received so much, and now it’s time to give back … to those who really need help.”
In March, Marcelito Pomoy also posted a video of himself singing a cover of Michael Jackson’s song “Heal the World” to honor those affected by the pandemic. He started the video with a prayer for fighting the virus.
Marcelito also donated his YouTube earnings to buy construction materials to help a family finish building their house. Not only that, but he helped distribute PPE from Operation Smile Philippines to a hospital, and he’s currently supporting the “Adopt a School” project to provide supplies to teachers.
Marcelito Builds A House For An Elderly Woman
As if everything we just mentioned weren’t enough, Marcelito Pomoy also surprised an elderly woman in the Philippines with her own brand-new house. Aurora’s old home was torn down, and a new one was built in just four days.
Marcelito told CNN Philippines that he saw Aurora’s old house while distributing supplies in the Quezon Province. “She was absolutely destitute in her dilapidated house,” he said, adding, “Nanay Aurora can now sleep and rest well with her new home that we also furnish with everything she needs for her to have a comfortable life.”
In a vlog about the house’s construction, Marcelito says he was reminded of his own past when he saw Aurora’s living conditions. “I was so grateful that someone helped me,” Aurora told him afterward.
It’s inspiring to see how dedicated Marcelito is to giving back, especially during such a difficult time for so many people around the world.
