LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Callie Day, a pharmacy technician at a Lexington Walmart, loves to sing but has never been able to do it full-time. Soon, that might all change after a hit viral video was released of her singing.
Callie was featured in a national, online Walmart ad for her charisma and vocal abilities, but a simple Facebook video post is what is making waves on the Internet.
The video is gaining Callie praise. It has more than 2.5 million views, and it has received shout outs from celebrities such as American Idol alum Fantasia and well known gospel singer, Kim Burrell.
"I was doing them quick runs like Callie Day. Have you all heard of Callie Day? Callie day is the truth and a half," Burrell said.
Callie was surprised her video went viral.
"I was asleep when I got all these pings. Everybody's like Fantasia just...I'm like, uh, what? What are you talking about," Day said
Callie is currently fundraising in hopes to finish production on her first album. She told affiliate WKYT her goal is to one day be able to take care of her friends and family.
Day said her favorite song is "Hear My Prayer" by Moses Hogan. It's the same song she was singing in her viral video.
"You know I've gotten plenty of emails you know telling me that song has blessed me so they were thinking about committing suicide and they were just saying I just kept playing Hear My Prayer over and over and over," Day said.
