A Dollar General cashier from Lansing, Michigan, is reaping the rewards for singing while he works.
Lucas Holliday was caught on camera singing Maxwell’s “Ascension” while checking out a customer, and the video has nearly a whopping 500 million views.
Today he received the surprise of a lifetime on “Good Morning America,” with a personal message from Maxwell inviting him on stage to perform with him at his Detroit concert on Friday night.
“Hey Lucas, this is Max. I saw your video,” the singer said in a recorded message. “You’re singing ‘Ascension.’ You sound unbelievable. I wanted to personally invite you on stage at my Detroit show, this Friday, and hopefully you’ll join us. And congratulations. You have a sick, amazing voice.”
An overwhelmed Holliday was shocked by the offer, covering his mouth with both hands in disbelief.
“Please, yes, please, please, please, lord please,” the 26-year-old mustered out after the news began to sink in.
