Michigan’s ‘Singing Cashier’ To Appear On NBC’s The Voice [Video]
Last year we told you about Lucas Holliday, the singing cashier from Lansing whose viral video fame led him to be invited by R and B legend Maxwell to sing with him onstage.
Now, Lucas is taking the next step, a chance to woo the judges on NBC's Emmy Award winning show The Voice.
Holliday has confirmed with the Lansing State Journal that he will appear on this coming season of the reality series, The Voice, which is known for its blind auditions, where the judges cannot see the singer.
"Believe me, this was not easy to keep quiet. BAM!!! SURPRISE!!!! Come take this journey with your friendly neighborhood singing cashier! The Voice airs September 25. #Season13," Holliday posted to Facebook this week.
Holliday is under contract not to disclose how far he has advanced on the show, which slowly whittles down the contestants until a winner is named.
Holliday appeared on ABC's 'Good Morning America' shortly after the video of him singing while manning the cash register at a Dollar General Store went viral, rolling off over 600,000 views. The invite from Maxwell to sing with him came shortly thereafter.
Holliday has recorded an album of new music at Bob Baldori's Lansing studio. Baldori told the Lansing State Journal he is currently acting as his manager.
"(Lucas) is a major talent, and it's been great working with him, I have high hopes for him." Baldori was quoted as saying.
Holliday has also been appearing locally at venues in Michigan. Here's a video he posted of him performing at Bull Frog's in Detroit.
Michigan artists have done well on the Voice. Joshua Davis of Traverse City made it to the semi-finals, as did Ann Arbor's Laith Al-Saadi. Gaylord's Lauren Duski finished second on season 12 which just wrapped up in May.
