Lucas Holliday has a lot to be grateful for this year. The 26-year-old Dollar General cashier from Lansing, Michigan became a viral sensation last week after he was filmed singing Maxwell's "Ascension" while checking in items at work. Then on Friday night, he experienced a whole different kind of fame when Maxwell invited him to sing the song with him on stage during his Detroit concert. Holliday absolutely killed it, proving himself a true star.

You can watch Maxwell's footage of the duet here:

The R&B singer also posted these pics of the two of them on stage. Holliday looks like the happiest human on earth:

And here is more footage of the duet filmed by a concert-goer:

Holliday was nothing if not grateful for the opportunity, grinning widely throughout the performance. After, he told ABC: "I'm forever grateful. Whatever happens from here on out, I'm forever grateful for this moment."​

And the collaboration seems to have restored at least several audience members' faith in humanity:

This is a beautiful reminder that anything is possible, at least when you're insanely talented and have the voice of an angel.
