Eleven-year-old Mason Ramsey, aka the “yodeling boy,” skyrocketed to social media fame last week with a video of him yodeling in his local Walmart, which went viral overnight. On Thursday, rumors followed that Ramsey would make an surprise guest appearance during any number of artists’ sets at Coachella Music Valley Music & Arts Festival. Rumors, as it goes for bigger events, are almost always true.
During day one of the California mega-festival, the yodel kid joined electronic dance producer Whethan onstage to perform his rendition of Hank Williams’ “Lovesick Blues,” garnering one of the biggest crowd reactions of the festival. Whatever the case, it’s become apparent the young yodeling star has quite the successfully awkward career ahead of him.
Even Justin Bieber was captured grooving to Ramsey’s performance, which was tweeted out by a number of attendees.
