Shocked by Holliday’s vocals, Maxwell offered a surprise of his own with a video message on “Good Morning America,” where Holliday was a guest.
“You sound unbelievable,” said Maxwell. “I wanted to personally invite you onstage at my Detroit show this Friday…Congratulations! You have a sick amazing voice.”
Maxwell went on to praise Holliday again on Twitter. “he’s doing more for me than he even realizes,” he wrote. “much love to @GMA for changing and creating opportunities for everyone who has a dream.”
