ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – A typical trip to the store turned into a heart-warming venture for an Abilene musician who stumbled upon something unexpected while shopping at Target.
Tim Palmer told KTAB and KRBC he was walking through the store with his wife when he heard the most amazing sound – a man singing like there was no one around.
His wife encouraged him to capture the voice on Facebook through a live video so he could share the moment with his family and friends.
Tim turned on his camera and began streaming as he followed the sound straight to Target employee Maurice.
Tim introduced himself to Maurice and asked him to “sing for his friends on Facebook”, and although he was taken aback at first, Maurice opened up and performed an impromptu song that’s now been viewed by thousands on social media.
The men’s encounter has extended beyond a chance meeting at Target – Tim says he reached out to Maurice on social media that night, and the men decided to meet at McMurry University to jam to a duet of Jason Marz’s “I’m Yours”.
