During the semifinals of AGT: The Champions, Marcelito said he suffered chest pains before his performance and was worried he “might not be able to handle it.” However, he pushed through and put on an amazing performance of Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman’s “Time to Say Goodbye.”

Marcelito posted on Facebook in November of last year that he was “not feeling well” and had chest pain. He asked fans to pray that he received a “positive result.” He’s apparently still getting the issue checked out, based on this week’s video.
