Michael Bublé honored his grandfather’s dying wish to leave his longtime caretaker Minette a home to stay at with her family.
The Canadian singer rewarded the lucky Filipina, who stood by his grandfather’s side for eight years, with a picturesque, newly-renovated house in Vancouver.
He tapped award-winning “Property Brothers” Drew and Jonathan Scott to jazz up the 1970s house built and once owned by his late grandfather Demetrio as a special present for Minette.
Michael had a hand in the restoration as seen in the HGTV series “Celebrity IOU,” a show “where Hollywood A-listers express their deep gratitude to individuals who had a major impact on their lives by surprising them with big, heartwarming home renovations that bring everyone to tears.”
The multi-Grammy-winning artist was initially lost, admitting he never worked on building or renovation prior to shooting the episode.
“I’ve never broken stuff before … purposely,” Michael confessed, but one of the Scott twins quipped back that he’s “broken hearts for a living.”
Surely enough, before-and-after pictures of the property’s interiors only underscore how the already beautiful can be magnified into perfection. “I came from the Philippines, working as a community health worker, then I got hired by Michael’s family to look after grandma and grandpa at the same time,” Minette said on “Celebrity IOU,” revealing how she knows Michael as family outside of stardom.
