A TikTok video is now going viral online with over 1 million views in just 24 hours that features a Filipino teacher in the middle of a class and being interrupted by an Egyptian student by singing the classic Frank Sinatra song ‘Fly Me To The Moon.’

The teacher, Dr. Rex Venard Bacarra, was praised for his tolerance, while the student, Ameer El Sayed Hashem was adored for his powerful voice.

The video was taken inside Rex’s Humanities class at the American College of Dubai. Rex is the dean of General Education and professor of Philosophy in the same school.

According to him, he was giving examples on social contract by English philosophers Thomas Hobbes and John Locke when the student started to belt out the song.

“Students got shocked, didn’t know how to react, and probably was waiting for my reaction. In context, I don’t really like being disrupted, but they also knew, too well, that I am a great supporter of excellence through hard work, while letting be themselves. I enjoyed it. With a fantastic “Amy Winehouse” voice like that, who wouldn’t. I just wished he finished it” Rex wrote in his Facebook account after knowing that the short video had gone viral already.

In a separate Facebook post, he revealed that Ameer will be guesting at Virgin Radio Dubai. He also added that a music producer from the US is working to fly him to LA for a possible record deal, and two producers in Dubai will meet him this week for yet other possible record deals.

It is so funny how a circumstance can change a boy’s life. Remember that student who belted out a song in my class?…
