14 year old Filipino singer invited to Ellen show in U.S.

When 14 year old Aldrich Lloyd Talonding's video was posted on YouTube, he had no idea that it would make him famous.  His cousin posted the video of Aldrich singing Luther Vanross' Dance with My Father along with his cousin's guitar accompaniment.

Aldrich's rendition of the song is really amazing and spread quickly through YouTube.  It's so amazing that Ellen DeGeneres played it on her show and asked Aldrich to “please come here and sing to me and all of my friends here.”

After receiving a call from the show's producer, Aldrich is applying for a visa to come to the U.S.

Check out Aldrich's performance:



And that's what's good,

Love outshines monsoon - couple weds rain or shine

Many pray for sun on their wedding day.  This young couple in love knew what was most important - each other.  They were not going to let anything get in their way, not even a monsoon!

The monsoon that hit the Philippines in August of 2012 landed right on their wedding day.  Ramoncito Campo and his wife Hernelie Ruazol Campo didn't care.  They showed that their love ran so much deeper than water.  Awww :)

These two love birds have shown the world that you cannot control the weather, but you can express your love rain or shine!

Romoncito and Hernelie Campo share a kiss in the church after the wedding


Thank you Romoncito and Hernelie!  Not only have you shared the love with each other, but you have given smiles and love to everyone who sees your beautiful wedding picture.  Good World News wishes you the best!

Peace & Love,
Jon

13 year old Filipino wins $130,000 Children's Peace Prize

At the age of 4, Cris "Kesz" Valdez was homeless and on his own.  Kesz ran away from an abusive and drug addicted father.  He went to a nearby dump site in the capital city, Manila, to join other homeless kids seeking food and shelter.  One day he fell into a burning pile of tires and yelled for help.  His current guardian came to the rescue.

On his seventh birthday, instead of asking for gifts for himself, he asked to give gifts to other homeless children in Manila thus starting his "Championing Community Children" charity.  His charity gives gifts, flip flops, educates kids, and mends their wounds.

Kesz is now being honored with the Children's Peace Prize of 2012 for all of his good work.  Nobel Peace laureate Desmond Tutu gave Kesz his beautiful award.

 

 

Keep up the wonderful work Kesz!!!!  You are doing amazing things for the world. 

 

Peace & Love,

Jon
