Irving musician Jesse Rya, who regularly sings and plays his guitar outside of the Irving Kroger on Belt Line Road, gained national attention with his appearance on ABC’s late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live! May 20.

“A couple of weeks ago a guy named Jesse was sitting outside of a Kroger supermarket in Irving, Texas,” late-night host Jimmy Kimmel began.

Kimmel invited Jesse and two rappers, who were featured in a YouTube video that received 7 million views in three days, to sing on his show.

The YouTube video was recorded and posted by Irving Family Dollar Store General Manager Jaime Maldonado, who was also invited to the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show.
