She posted the video she took on her Facebook page calling for agents to help the talented tenor make his dreams come true - and it has already had over half a million views.

My uber driver this morning in Durban, Menzi Mngoma, a 27-year-old musicology graduate, sang opera to me on the way to my meeting! Made my day! No opportunities for him in South Africa, he has resorted to being an Uber driver to earn a living. What a talented and special human being. Any agents out there who could assist him in making his dreams come true....message me! #menzimngoma #opera#tenoutoftenor
