Mason Ramsey is performing at Coachella this weekend, offering audiences the chance to hear the yodeling Walmart kid who went viral in recent days, Vibe noted.

The 11-year-old earned the nicknames "Walmart yodel boy" and "yodeling kid" after a video showing Ramsey standing in the aisle of Walmart yodeling his heart out became an online sensation, Time reported.

Since then the pre-teen has bagged a deal with the department store chain, which has agreed to pay $15,000 toward his college costs in future, NME said.

Ramsey also appeared on "The Ellen DeGenres Show," where he performed his rendition of Hank Williams' "Lovesick Blues."

A day later he performed to a packed parking lot outside Walmart in Illinois and even drew praise from the mayor.

"It means a lot to me, I just love it, I just love all my fans," Ramsey said of his supporters, according to ABC affiliate WSIL-TV.

Harrisburg Mayor John McPeek said he was proud of Ramsey, adding that he hoped the boy "succeeds in life."

Sources close to the yodeling sensation told TMZ that he would be sharing the stage with some of music's hottest acts including singer and rapper Post Malone and emerging DJ Whethan.

According to the report, several top artists have already reached out to Ramsey in hope of securing him as a guest performer at Coachella, but Ellen DeGeneres has helped secure the internet star a prime booking at the prestigious country festival, Grand Ole Opry, for Saturday, which is when Malone is slated to perform at Coachella.

However, this does not mean that Ramsey will not perform with Malone. Sources told TMZ that the boy's team was trying to arrange for the collaboration to take place at the second weekend of the festival.
