HOUSTON (CBS) – A smooth rendition of a classic tune has a homeless man in Houston climbing the internet charts.
Maurice Hill went viral after he sang “Happy Birthday” to a woman who gave him food.
Cristala Poole turned 35 and for her birthday, she decided to focus on helping the community.
When searching for a homeless person to buy a meal for, Poole found Hill in downtown Houston.
Poole recorded video of the song, and posted it online.
The video reached more than 17,000 views in less than 24 hours.
