Home Entertainment Michael Bublé gives Filipina nurse a home, fulfills his grandfather's dying wish

Michael Bublé gives Filipina nurse a home, fulfills his grandfather’s dying wish

According to the singer, the house was built by his grandfather “with his own two hands” in the 1970s.

One of the best traits of every Filipino is their compassion toward the elderly. They are naturally kind and treat everyone with the utmost respect—regardless of who they are. This is exactly why Filipinos are known in world to be one of the best in terms of caregiving. 

This might be the reason why singer Michael Bublé’s grandfather made a special wish before he passed away in 2018: He wanted to give his Filipina nurse a home of her own.

And like the dutiful grandson that he is, the Canadian singer fulfilled this wish.

In the newest episode of the Hollywood show “Celebrity IOU,” the ‘feeling good’ singer gave a newly-renovated home in Vancouver, Canada to Minette, a Filipina nurse who cared for Bublé’s grandfather for eight years. 

According to Bublé, his grandfather Demetrio wished to give Minette a house to ease her struggles.

“I think my grandpa would be thrilled to know that we could maybe lessen the burden a little bit and allow Minette to continue helping her family without it being so hard for her.” 

Bublé described the Pinay nurse as a really compassionate, kind, and empathetic human being.  According to him, Minette never did anything for herself as she always sends most of her earnings to her family in the Philippines.

Grandfather’s Wish

Bublé renovated the Vancouver property with Drew and Jonathan Scott of “Property Brothers.” According to the singer, the house was built by his grandfather “with his own two hands” in the 1970s. But decided to give it to Minette because his grandfather really hoped she could live in it. 

When it was time to turn over the newly renovated house to Minette, the Pinay nurse did not hold back her tears.

“’It is so much, really, really so much,” she said. “I have no words right now. It hasn’t sunk in yet. It’s beautiful, beautiful.”
