Working as a waitress, cashier, and as the entertainment for the night quickly landed one Cleveland singer in the spotlight and gained her the attention of top celebrities.
In a video clip that spread online like wildfire on Thursday, Erika Kayne was seen ringing up customers reportedly at KeVante's Restaurant & Lounge. She was also waiting tables and singing at the same time.
Kayne's multi-tasking skills impressed a comedian who put the video online. There was also the fact that Kayne's singing voice was amazing. The clip is found below.
The employee, who sang Jazmine Sullivan's "Need U Bad," caught the attention of none other than Snoop Dogg as well as Kandi Burruss, Jazze Pha, SZA, and Jazmine Sullivan herself, reported Atlanta Black Star.
Below the initial video, Snoop commented: "Wow where she at she is amazing." Then he later reposted the video to his own Instagram and captioned it:
"No, she didn't work the register and the mic. [fire emojis] Yes she did. That's black girl power she needs a deal. Pronto."
Kayne, who had given permission to the patron to record and share the video to Facebook, never expected things to go this far. She retweeted the reactions (with her own reactions to them) of the many celebrities who saw her doing her thing that night.
WZAK Cleveland reported that it was only last month the young lady lost her grandmother. Kayne has already sat down with the radio station to tell her story and express her gratitude for the praise and support she's gotten.
She is also set to appear on "Good Morning America" on Friday and then later on, "The Steve Harvey Show." We sure hope the Cleveland singer is able to gain success in her endeavors.
Another talented individual who went viral unexpectedly was the principal of Gwynns Falls Elementary school when he did a step routine in front of his students for their annual Black Heritage Program last year.
In September 2018, Nikomar Mosley, a former member of the black fraternity Omega Psi Phi, sang and danced at the event as he honored his fraternity for the special occasion.
Mosley also gave a speech encouraging students to engage in relationship-building activities when they go to college. The school shared the video and, though it didn't get Mosley any deals, it did put smiles on the faces of many.
