Arjohn Gilbert was just an Aeta street kid selling flutes in Clark, Pampanga when his singing prowess was discovered by ryaneski, the youtube uploader. Recognizing the undeniable talent of this charming young man with his incandescent personality, ryaneski didn’t think twice about whipping out his camera phone and capturing Arjohn’s talent on video.
As of press time, his video has had 1, 097, 376 views with 25,472 likes. In fact, his video was even featured in none other than Ryan Seacrest’s website. Not bad for a street kid whose only dream in life was to sell enough flutes to buy rice for his family. Hopefully, this exposure could open doors and opportunities for Arjohn, be it in the Philippines or in the international arena.
