Singing Waitress Goes Viral, Industry Takes Notice
Erika Kayne was videotaped singing at her father's restaurant, KeVante’s Restuarant & Lounge in the Richmond Mall in Richmond Heights, Ohio while ringing up a tab. It has racked up about 3 million views on Facebook.
In the video, Kayne sings “Need U Bad” by Jazmine Sullivan.
Are you kidding me?” a person can be heard commenting during the off-hand performance.
This week, the serenade caught the attention of comedian Justin Whitehead, Kandi Burruss and Snoop Dogg, who reposted the video, saying, “That’s black girl power she needs a deal. Pronto.” “OMG Uncle snoop never in a million years thought you would be posting me,” Kayne responded. “Oh my lord I’m truly grateful thank you sooooooo much.”
The singer has since traveled to New York City for various radio and television spots.
