A Dollar General cashier in Lansing, Mich., has a few million fans now thanks to a video of his singing that went viral last week.


Lucas Holliday's rendition of Maxwell’s “Ascension” caught the attention not only of millions on social media but also of Maxwell.

During a surprise Good Morning America appearance, Maxwell invited Holliday to perform with him at his upcoming Detroit show.

“Hey, Lucas, this is Max. I saw your video,” the singer said. “You're singing ‘Ascension.’ You sound unbelievable. I wanted to personally invite you onstage at my Detroit show this Friday, and hopefully you'll join us. And congratulations. You have a sick, amazing voice.”


Of course Holliday took Maxwell up on his invite.

“Please, yes, please, please, please, Lord, please,” he replied.

Holliday says he's always singing for customers at the store, but when he's not being a cashier, he's singing in his band, Tell Yo Mama.
