Pati tells of a 15-year-old boy he and his cousin found while driving. The boy had been, according to Pati, drinking and driving to numb the pain of his homelife.

The tenor intervened and spoke to the youth about his situation.

Visibly upset by the incident, Pati concludes the video by saying, “There are people like that out there who just need a helping hand.”

Here’s Pene singing in the final round of the Operalia singing competition from earlier this year:

Ah! leve toi soleil! the final round of the competition :)
