Manny Pacquiao can knock a dude out, but can he hit falsetto?
It all started when Pacquiao performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live
in 2009. Recording artist Dan Hill
, who wrote the 1977 love ballad, reached out to the soulful icon and offered to team up with him on a reboot of the single. "I was immediately drawn by the honesty and the gentleness of his performance," Hill told Billboard
. "It was like 'wow.'"
Pacquiao's rendition of "Sometimes When We Touch," released in April, includes original lyrics such as, "A hesitant prize fighter/ Still trapped within my youth."
Here's a trailer of the DVD that comes with the track
Where will Pacman go next? It doesn't seem to matter--his fans are sure to follow.
