We’ve all been there … humming a tune or belting out our favorite ballads while doing tedious things around the house, while driving, or even while sitting at our desks. But imagine if someone recorded you and then, all of a sudden, you become an overnight sensation?

This happened for one grocery store clerk who sang a Maxwell classic while at work, and now … the Internet can’t get enough of him.

Lucas Holliday, a cashier at the Dollar General in Lansing, Michigan, is making jaws drop all around the world after he was recorded singing “Ascension” while scanning groceries.

A regular shopper at the store captured Holliday, clad in a grey sweatshirt, singing with her cell phone and now, his life might be changed forever.

Maxwell saw the clip and was so impressed that he invited the singer to his show in Detroit on Friday. He revealed the big news during Monday’s episode of Good Morning America. “I couldn’t ruin his surprise on the show I taped the invitation last night for … good things can happen,” the singer wrote on Twitter.


The singer then added on Twitter that the store clerk was “doing more for me than he even realizes and much love to for changing and creating opportunities for everyone who has a dream.”


For Lucas, his dreams definitely came true and it looks like folks are anxious for the clerk to make it to the big leagues. “Motown betta get this white chocolate sensation,” one YouTube user wrote.

Another wrote, “Please tell me your gonna try out for the voice, American got talent, something cause talent like that needs to be shared with the world.”

When you listen to Holliday sing, chills will run through your body. Seriously. And what makes the video that much more impressive, is the cashier is singing while telling a shopper the total of her groceries. Talk about multitasking skills.

TimesUp! Tracee Ellis Ross Wants More Money For ‘Blackish’



Tracee Ellis Ross is reportedly the latest star tackling gender wage gap in Hollywood head on.

As the #MeTooMovement continues to stay relevant around the world and the TimesUp campaign continues to grow, women are starting to speak out about making less money than their male co-stars.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ross makes significantly less money than her black-ish co-star, Anthony Anderson, and now is fighting for equal pay.  Per the report, “Ellis Ross feels that if she isn’t brought up to Anderson’s level, she may opt to appear in fewer episodes to make up the disparity by guesting on another show.”

A source at ABC also suggested that a “new deal will significantly increase her compensation and cautioned that Anderson and Ellis Ross’ roles aren’t equal given that he has been attached to Black-ish from the start and is an executive producer.”

SIDE NOTE: That was also the argument when E! News host, Catt Sadler stepped down due to making less than Jason Kennedy. At the time, the network claimed Jason had other duties, which also included his contributions to the Today show.

Ross has yet to comment on the report, but if she does take a step back, this means the show will be more male dominated; after all, Zoe, played by Yara Shahidi, is now in college and has her own spinoff show, Grownish.
