WATCH: Moira Dela Torre surprises busker with impromptu duet
Singer Moira Dela Torre made one lucky busker’s night when she performed a duet with her on her makeshift stage.
A certain @trinamorata or “TJ” got the surprise from Dela Torre and her husband when they all together ended up singing some of Dela Torre’s hit songs such as “Tagpuan” and “Ikaw at Ako”.
The singer-songwriter narrated that she was out having dinner with her husband, Jason Marvin Hernandez when they heard the busker singing. Dela Torre posted about the encounter on Instagram TV yesterday, Dec 8.
Dela Torre stated that it was a different kind of feeling to hear her songs being performed by someone else. TJ was singing “Tagu-taguan” when Dela Torre approached her and dropped some change in her guitar case. After her performance, they cheered the busker. TJ then noticed the singer as one of her audience.
“And dami niyang napasaya kagabi (She made a lot of people happy that night),” Dela Torre said. “Isa na ‘ko don (I’m one of them).”
Dela Torre serenaded the small crowd that gathered for their little impromptu concert, while TJ played guitar. Hernandez also took part in the performance of their wedding song, “Ikaw at Ako”. The busker gave her own take on the soothing love song as she sang some parts of it until the end.
“What a great way to end the year,” Dela Torre said.

Nagddinner lang kame nung may narinig kaming nagbbusk kinakanta mga kanta namin. Iba parin talaga yung feeling na marinig mo yung kanta mong kinakanta ng iba. Sobra sobra akong nagpapasalamat sa Panginoon sa lahat ng pinakilala Niya sa akin sa Tagpuan😊 Kaya sinurprise namin ni Jason yung kumakanta. Pangalan niya TJ. At ang dami niyang napasaya kagabi… isa na'ko don. Salamat sa lahat ng nakikanta sa #BiglaangTagpuan. What a great way to end the year ❄️ // And to @trinamorata please always remember this… You are stronger and braver than you think. I'm so thankful to have met you. 💖ADVERTISEMENT
Dela Torre also gave the budding performer some words of encouragement, then expressed her gratitude for the experience.
“You are stronger and braver thank you think. I’m so thankful to have met you,” Dela Torre said.
Dela Torre tied the knot with her fellow musician Jason Hernandez in a garden wedding in Tagaytay City earlier this year. JB
