Not only did Mason Ramsey make it on the Ellen show, HE PERFORMED AT COACHELLA TOO! No, we aren’t kidding! At only 11 years old, the kid is literally performing at one of the most famous music festivals in the world and rubbing shoulders with Justin Bieber who he claims he is a massive fan of. He took to the Sahara stage wearing his signature cowboy hat right before up-and-coming DJ Whethan’s set. He even got Bieber to bust some moves with his friends as he yodelled “Lovesick Blues”. Bieber even got a sneaky selfie with the mini country singer.
After his appearance on the Ellen show, Mason had his own hashtag trending on twitter, #Walmartyodelingkid, and the crowd went wild when he appeared on stage – it was a moment that aptly distilled the culture of the festival as a can’t-miss destination for music fans – and those who just want to be seen. From a brave little boy in Walmart to a country singer sharing an international stage with the biggest names in the music industry, whirlwind doesn’t even to begin to describe his rise to fame!
