The event will be streamed on Walmart's Twitter and Facebook accounts.

On Wednesday, Walmart rewarded him for his bravery, setting up a stage in the parking lot of that store, drawing a massive crowd to hear him perform in earnest. Social media turned the boy into a meme, and others even created some remixes of him singing. Ramsey was overcome with emotion by the incredible news.

The number of streams of "Lovesick Blues" - a song that is almost 70 years old - by the country music pioneer has increased by a whopping 2452% over a period of two weeks (26 March to 9 April).

Led by Lionel Messi , the Catalans registered a total of 9 shots, of which only a disappointing total of 3 were on target. Two-nil against that team is a little bit different. "For that reason they were better in all aspects tonight".

But The Ellen Degeneres Show holds a very special place in our hearts, so when 11-year-old Mason Ramsey made an appearance last night to chat with Ellen, we were tickled. He sat down with the comedian and charmed the audience before performing on national TV. She offered him a chance to perform at the Grand Ole Opry and $15,000 to help pay for college (two life goals that Ramsey mentioned to Ellen at the beginning of her show), and his surprised reaction is priceless.

After he performed, DeGeneres told Ramsey that he was booked to sing at the historic venue on Saturday. According to a report from Time, streaming replays of "Lovesick Blues" shot up nearly 2,500 percent after Ramsey's video went viral.

When DeGeneres asked Mason why he chose to perform in his local Harrisburg, IL Walmart, his quick response drew laughter: "Because that's the only store we've got", he said of his hometown's business - population 700.
