DUBAI – Michael Bublé gave a Filipino caretaker the surprise of a lifetime by giving her his grandfather’s home in Vancouver, Canada.
In an episode of Celebrity IOU, the ‘Feeling Good’ singer said it was his grandfather’s “greatest wish” to give the family home to Minette.
The Canadian singer said he wanted to fulfill his grandfather’s wish by giving his Filipino caretaker a home of her own.
Bublé had hired Minette, a nurse, to take care of his grandfather and live with him in their Vancouver home.
“Minette is this kind, compassionate really sympathetic human being. She became family almost instantly,” he said.
The singer also shared how Minette has been sending all the money she has made to her family in the Philippines.
“She’s really a special, beautiful woman,” Bublé said.
“I think my grandpa would be thrilled knowing that maybe we could lessen the burden a little bit, allowing Minnette to continue helping her family without it being so hard on her,” he said.
While Minette was visiting the Philippines, Bublé and the hosts of Celebrity IOU renovated the Vancouver home before giving it to her.
When it was time for the big reveal, Bublé had to tell Minette they were shooting a documentary. The Filipina had no idea they were driving to her newly renovated home.
“You make me cry,” an emotional Minette said when Bublé broke the news that the home “is all for you”.
“My grandfather, his greatest wish was not just that I kept this house in the family, but it was that this would be your home cause he loved you so much and so there is no documentary this is all for you,” the singer said. ICA/Expat Media
