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.
