Schoolkids at Lander Elementary couldn’t believe their eyes when the rapper came on stage and began performing the song. Nas X AKA Montero Lamar Hill called it “the biggest show of my life.”
The special appearance was made after Lil Nas X saw a video of the children singing and dancing to ‘Old Town Road’.

Principal Felecia Evans shared the video last week and Lil Nas responded with his own tweet saying, “when they want a free show”.
Then, arrangements were made for the star to give an exclusive show at the elementary school.
It wasn’t long before footage of the private show went viral and people couldn’t get enough.
