Jared Young with Lea SalongaYou have to be happy for this guy, even if it happened three years ago.

Jared Young was in the audience in Utah at a Lea Salonga concert when the actress asked an audience member on stage to sing her hit, A Whole New World, with her.

“When she asked the audience for a volunteer… I managed to start screaming ‘LEA, PICK ME!!’ She chose me and I ran onstage out of breath and still a bit shocked at what was about to happen. We bantered a bit about my excitement then she handed me a lyric sheet and we began,” he told Yahoo.

The video the Samoan-white singer posted on You Tube has generated 100,000 views in just two days and 1.3 million overall.

It continues to be shared and has a steady stream of views since being posted.

The result is below.

Salonga has been asking audience members to join her for A Whole New World for six years.

“And it’s always wonderful when the guy comes up here is actually really, really good so Jared, thank you!” she said.

What has Jared done since then? You can find out in Yahoo.
