WTH?!?!? Maxwell Is Hard To Sing, But THIS Cashier Is About To Shock You! 😱

Posted On : November 11, 2016

You never know where you’ll find talent. Unexpectedly, sometimes, people can shock you into a state of belief. That’s what this Dollar General cashier has done to millions.

— Lansing, Michigan

This is definitely an ear-grabber if you’ve never heard one. The video was shared by rapper Boosie Badazz, and so far, it’s accumulated over 6 million views — and it’s still climbing fast.

The thing is this: no one knows this guy’s name, other than those in Lansing.

There was little information shared about this songbird. So, the only thing we know is that he could easy sub-in for Maxwell, and he works at Dollar General in Lansing, Michigan, on “MLK” across from “Silverstone.”

At least, that’s what the camerawoman shared about it. You can watch the video for yourself below.

100% Voice Here

And, of course, the man is singing Maxwell’s “Ascension.”

Many people know this song as “Don’t Ever Wonder,” for good reason. Excuse me if I’m wrong, but — according to Metro Lyrics — the words don’t mention “ascension” once within the song.


Whatever the case, it’s obvious that someone needs to “ascend” into that Lansing Dollar General and offer this man a deal.

That’s raw talent and voice — no computer or audio manipulation…or Autotune.

If he can sound that good on a cell phone microphone — and you know they’re the worst — could you imagine his clarity in a studio?

When Opportunity Strikes

When it’s time to shine, you can’t be afraid to give it your all. You never know who people know or who’s going to stumble upon the video.

As you can see, Boosie just happened to share it, and this man’s voice has been hear nearly 7 million times within the last 24 hours!

That’s one way to become an Internet sensation.

Surely, this man didn’t expect to come to work and have 7 million people listen to him.

Hopefully, something good comes out of this experience. He doesn’t have this voice for nothing, right?

“Ascension” is an awesome song on which to showcase his ability. It’s not an easy song to cover. And, it’s not a song you’d want to bomb, given its reputation.


In 1997, Maxwell actually won a Soul Train Music Award for Best R&B/Soul single for the song.

While it’s known that Blacks are usually key performers of neo-soul music, sometimes, you’ll find other ethnicities that have channeled into their inner grooves and can “wow!” you just as much as the next artist.

Nevertheless, what are your thoughts on the man’s vocal skills? Feel free to share in the comments below.
