Rapper Nicki Minaj gave a shout-out to Darren Espanto on her Facebook page after watching a nearly three-month-old video showing the 14-year-old sing Sia’s “Chandelier” on a moving Wish 107.5 FM bus.

“So effortless. Incredible voice!”

Thanks, Nicki, for letting your 42-million Facebook followers know how you feel about our Filipino-Canadian homie.

Minaj also shared a link to the story about Darren’s video, published on A Plus, a website owned by Ashton Kutcher.

That’s two big Hollywood points for you, Darren!

Obviously, Darren couldn’t hide his joy when he learned about it, so he screen-capped Minaj’s Facebook post and and shared it on his own Instagram account: “WOOOOAAAAH! BRUUUUUUUUHHH! THANK YOU SO MUCH QUEEN @NICKIMINAJ!”
