Aldrich Lloyd Talonding, a 14-year-old boy from the Philippines, amazed American TV host Ellen DeGeneres with his rendition of "Dance With My Father."

On Monday's episode of her talk show, DeGeneres featured the Filipino kid's cover of Luther Vandross and invited him over to her show.

"Last week, I saw this video of a young singer. He's from the Philippines. You got to see this kid. Amazing!," she gushed before the clip was played.

"How beautiful is that. That soul in the little boy. I'm looking for you. Please come here and sing to me and all of my friends here. You are amazing," said DeGeneres, who apparently is still searching for information about the talented Noypi.

Over a week ago, NoypiStuff contacted Aldrich's sister, Sharla Mae Talonding, who said that they are from General Santos City and that they are Blaan natives. The Blaan people are one of the indigenous groups of Southern Mindanao.

She added that their father is a pastor and the older guy, who is playing the guitar on the viral video, is their cousin, James Bucong.
