Video of an Ontario woman's impromptu rap at a U.S. drug store is gaining her fans before her first EP is even released.
Kay is from Cambridge, Ont., a community approximately 100 kilometres southwest of Toronto. She appeared on America's Got Talent, performs in the Toronto-based a cappella group Eh440, and has a self-titled EP due to be released soon.
Eh440 posted the cellphone video of her performance in a Walgreens drug store in Charleston, S.C., with the caption: "This happened."
The video was posted by the group on Jan. 28, according to Facebook, and shared by Stacey the same day.
It shows Kay quickly rapping the tongue-tying lyrics, while employees in the background cheer her on and dance. The 50-second clip ends with the employees giving her hugs and high-fives.
According to Kay's YouTube page, she was shopping for tweezers, and made "instant friendships" during the spontaneous performance.
"This was literally the best moment of my life," Kay wrote.
Since posting, the video has gone viral, being viewed more than 111,502 times on Facebook as of Wednesday morning. On YouTube, the video has been seen another 50,000 times since it was posted on Feb. 1.
