(Video) Manny Pacquiao Duets With Original Singer On ‘Sometimes When We Touch’

There you go. The video above is from a press conference in Las Vegas for Manny Pacquiao’s upcoming bout with Juan Manuel Marquez. In it, Pacquaio gets the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sing “Sometimes When We Touch” with the original performer of the song, Dan Hill. As you may recall, Pacquiao’s rendition of the 1978 classic ballad spent the summer zooming up the adult contemporary charts.

Hill decided to join the Filipino boxing champ onstage for the impromptu and slightly haunting duet because he was so blown away by Pacquiao’s tender treatment of the song. Yep.

Via The Guardian:

“I saw Manny and heard Manny sing it on [Jimmy Kimmel Live] and I really loved the way he sang it,” Hill said.

“I was immediately drawn to the honesty and the gentleness of his performance. It was like, ‘whoa.'”

Whoa, indeed.
