The whole world knows the Chewbacca Mum loves to laugh. But now it turns out she can sing, too.
Candace Payne, the Dallas woman who earned instant notoriety after her video reacting to a Chewbacca mask went viral, has revealed another string to her bow.
Her infectious Facebook Live video has already earned her plenty of goodies, including her own Hasbro action figure, but last week her story took another turn when she was invited to perform the US national anthem before a Major League Baseball game.
The crowd at Houston’s Minute Maid Park may have come to see the Astros play the Mariners, but the lasting memory from the evening might just be Payne’s performance, as she stunned everybody by absolutely knocking The Star-Spangled Banner out of the damn park.
Payne’s ‘career’ so far has been a masterclass in how to handle the haters — the backlash to her viral video should have kicked in well before now, but she keeps surprising us with her seemingly genuine personality, and in this case, a display of real talent.
You keep doing you, Candace.
