Maxwell is making one talented fan’s dream come true.
Lucas Holliday, a Dollar General cashier in Lansing, MI, caught viral fame after a video of him singing Maxwell’s “Ascension” landed on Facebook.
Shocked by Holliday’s vocals, Maxwell offered a surprise of his own with a video message on “Good Morning America,” where Holliday was a guest.
“You sound unbelievable,” said Maxwell. “I wanted to personally invite you onstage at my Detroit show this Friday…Congratulations! You have a sick amazing voice.”
Maxwell went on to praise Holliday again on Twitter. “he’s doing more for me than he even realizes,” he wrote. “much love to @GMA for changing and creating opportunities for everyone who has a dream.”
Holliday is a musician and a member of a funk band called Tell Yo Mama. The group recently booked a wedding gig as a result of the viral fame and now, Lucas even has a gig with Maxwell, who is currently on tour with Mary J. Blige on their “King and Queen of Hearts Tour.”
The video of Lucas singing “Ascension” was posted by a store customer named, Nakia Robinson, who told her followers to come check out the talented cashier.
