Dollar General employee Lucas Holliday became an overnight success after he was filmed singing a classic Maxwell track and now, his name is flying all around the Internet.

As previously reported, Holliday was doing his day-to-day duties at the General in Lansing, Michigan, when a customer shot cell phone footage of Lucas belting out Maxwell’s “Ascension.” The video quickly went viral and now, Holliday will be joining Maxwell during is show in Detroit on Friday.

HipHollywood caught up with a store manager at the Dollar General, who revealed that Holliday is a “humble, nice kid” who “sings wonderfully.” According to the manger, the Lansing native has worked there for “years” and is always blessing people with his magical vocals.

As for possibly losing the cashier to a major record deal, the manager tells us exclusively that she “couldn’t be happier for him” and that she “wants Lucas to succeed.”

In the video, making its way around every single social media platform, Holliday can be seen scanning groceries while sharing his soulful voice.

    This is something that Maxwell WOULD do! He absolutely LOVES and appreciates his fans. He’s as humble as apple pie. So happy for Lucas’s rise to stardom! My only words of advice; “stay humble bro- stay humble”

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
