Not too long ago, a woman working at Ranaghat station in West Bengal became an overnight social media sensation when a video of her singing Lata Mangeshkar classic “Ek Pyar Ka Nagma” went viral. Ranu Mondal also went on to sing for a film after being offered by Himesh Reshammiya. And now, a beggar on the streets of Patna has left many stunned after flawlessly singing American singer Jim Reeves’ popular track ‘He’ll Have To Go’.
In a video, which has now gone viral on social media, the man fluently responds in English to all the questions he is asked before going on to sing the song. “So what do you do for your day to day life?” he is asked by the person making the video, to which he responds, “I beg”.
