Lucas in the House! Dollar Store Cashier Who Went Viral Joins Maxwell Onstage to Sing ‘Ascension’

Updated

From behind the counter to center stage, Lucas Holliday harmonized with Maxwell for a special performance of the singer’s hit 1996 song, “Ascension.”

Earlier this month, the Lansing, Michigan, resident went viral after a customer shared a video of the cashier belting it out to “Ascension.” Since then, the video has been viewed over 600,000 times, and during an interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America, Maxwell invited Holliday to perform with him at his Detroit, Michigan, show. The 43-year-old singer is currently traveling across the country with Mary J. Blige for the pair’s King and Queen of Hearts tour.

Holliday emphatically responded with, “Yes! Please! Please!”

And Maxwell followed through, as both he and Holliday shared videos from their night together. On Friday night, they took to the stage for a rendition of Maxwell’s classic tune.

“As promised mr. lucas holiday got on stage to sing ascension! special thanks to @GMA for finding him for me” #kingandqueenofheartsworldtour,” Maxwell captioned a Twitter video, in which he yells, “Lucas in the house!” to the crowd.

Holliday looked right at home, dancing and singing in another video Maxwell shared, which was captioned, “‘stay tuned to @GMA and watch behind the scenes footage of lucas holiday’s rise.. don’t ever wonder..’ #kingandqueenofheartsworldtour.”

Holliday also shared his appreciation for the night in a Twitter video from the night, which included a mid-concert viewing of the GMA clip.
“INCREDIBLE time last night. Thankful I can share this with you all. More soon. Thanks @_MAXWELL_ @maryjblige
#detroit,” Holliday wrote.

And it doesn’t look like the Dollar General store cashier is slowing down any time soon. On Sunday afternoon, he shared a vague tweet about what to expect from him in the future.
“Can’t wait to show whats next. God bless,” he wrote.
