HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A homeless man is stealing hearts with a sweet serenade for a woman who generously bought him a meal.

Cristala Poole told ABC13 that she recently encountered a man named Maurice near a McDonald's restaurant in downtown Houston. Poole was on a mission to do 35 random acts of kindness for her 35th birthday.

In a video, she explains to Maurice why she decided to treat him as part of her way of paying it forward.

Little did she know that her birthday mission would turn into much more than gesture from her.
