NEW YORK, NY – A New York janitor hasn’t gotten his golden ticket to Hollywood, but he’s chasing the dream. John Maldanado does more than clean up the hallways of a Harlem apartment building. He fills them with his voice.

John’s posted videos of himself singing in the hallways and they’ve gone viral. Residents don’t seem to mind either. They love the sound of his voice and think he sings great, but it hasn’t been great enough. John’s tried out for shows like American Idol and The Voice, but just hasn’t gotten his big break yet.

He says his plan for now is to keep cleaning and singing, and chasing that dream!
