Mr Guzman , 26 a Full time busker with pet Milo ( Beagle Dog) by his side, started his day off singing the Motown traditional “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)” . As he began to sing a group of people started walking in and dropping $20, $50 and $100 notes in his guitar. In the video below you can see, Mr Guzman turns emotional as he watches this.

“What is happening right now?” he asks.

All the folks who gathered there cheered around Guzman and few young ladies stepped ahead and started dancing to his song. Guzman addressed the group as soon after he finished singing.

I just recently had my daughter, she’s like three months old. Just doing my thing as a first time dad and honestly thank you. I’m at a loss for words, I’ve never had an experience like this. I feel truly blessed,” he said.”

After busking on the streets of Toronto for a while, Guzman heard about the TTC Musicians Program, but discovered that they do not accept percussion performers.
