Canadian singer Michael Buble has won praise from all over the world for his generous act of donating his late grandfather’s house in Vancouver to a Filipina caregiver.

Not only that, Buble even had the house renovated before handing over the keys to Minette, who the singer said took such good care of his grandfather that it became the elderly man’s dying wish to give her a house of her own.

Buble’s rare act of generosity was featured in an episode of the HGTV show, “Celebity IOU,” where Hollywood’s A-listers are asked to express their gratitude to individuals who have had a major impact on their lives by surprising them with home renovations.

Buble went beyond that by giving away the house as well to Minette, whom he described as “a really special, beautiful woman.”

“Minette doesn’t keep any of the money she makes, she’s got a lot of family in the Philippines and she takes that money and sends it all back,” the singer said of the Filipina.

Buble also said it was he who hired Minette, but by the end, she became his grandfather’s best friend.

"I think my grandpa would be thrilled knowing that maybe we could lessen the burden a little bit, allowing Minnette to continue helping her family without it being so hard on her," he also said.
To surprise Minette, Buble conspired with the show’s hosts and former neighbors Jonathan and Drew Scott to do the renovation while the Filipina was on vacation in the Philippines.

Buble got so involved in the task that he helped demolish walls by swinging a sledgehammer, putting him in some pain afterwards that he had to undergo tests.

“I don't know what I did. It was so bad that I went and got an MRI after," he told Entertainment Tonight. "It turns out that I'm just out of shape and I'm a wimp and the sledgehammer was too much for me — but O got in there. I refused to not be in there with them."

To complete the surprise, he told Minette that they were shooting a documentary about him and his grandpa, and she needed to accompany him back to the late man’s house.
But when it was time to reveal the surprise, Michael told Minette, "My grandfather, his greatest wish was not just that I kept this house in the family, but it was that this would be your home cause he loved you so much and so there is no documentary this is all for you.”

As expected, Minette was overwhelmed by the Buble’s generosity and could only say afterwards: “I guess I’m part of the family.”
