“It’s just me, and me, and nobody in the seat. I put my butt in the seat cause it’s juuuuust me!”

That’s just a small sampling of the song a woman named Stevie Shale recorded herself singing because she thought she was alone in a Chicago train car. In the video, she wanders around the car and really puts her heart into the performance—belting it out like she’s in a musical—before she realizes that she is not alone.

What really sells the video is how, after discovering that there is another passenger on the train, Shale doesn’t give up. She finishes the song with a bombastic “You have a good daaaay!”

It’s a real triumph of the human spirit, and Twitter responded appropriately.

The question on everyone’s mind, of course, is how drunk was she? Shale replied to that one herself. The answer? Not at all. This is just her normal, fantastic self.

Shale never mentions where it was she was going that day, but clearly, her next stop needs to to be Broadway. Talent like that shouldn’t be wasted on (almost) empty train cars.
