Richard Walker has been brightening the days of McDonald’s customers by singing between orders – and people online can’t get enough of his ‘brilliant’ performances
A McDonald’s employee has gone viral after he began singing to customers while waiting for their orders to be cooked – and people can’t get enough of his performances.
Richard Walker works behind the tills in the McDonald’s located on London’s Liverpool Street, and when he’s waiting for his co-workers to cook customer’s burgers, he loves nothing more than bursting into song and brightening people’s days in the process.
In a video shared to TikTok that now has over 631,000 views, Richard can be seen picking up a microphone and singing a moving rendition of This is How We Do It by Montell Jordan while his fellow employees can be seen working on customer’s orders behind him.
MyLondon reports Richard calls himself “Liverpool Street McD’s pro noise maker”, or alternatively, the McMC.

Currently, Richard has less than 1500 followers on his TikTok account (@ukrichardwalker) and has only uploaded two videos – but he’s already a smash hit with people online who can’t get enough of his upbeat attitude and stellar performances.
In fact, people are already planning to flock to Liverpool Street in the hopes of catching Richard at work.
One person commented on the video: “I know what I’ll be doing at lunchtime next week! I expect some singing.”
While another said: “I need to go to this McDonald’s!”
The second video on Richard’s TikTok account shows a packed McDonald’s at nighttime, and again sees the singer and fast food worker entertaining the masses to keep them busy while they wait patiently for their dinner.
In the clip, Richard is singing along to Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars – and has the customers singing along too.
He captioned that video: “I have a #God given passion for doing fun things with mics … that’s just way I am.”
And more commenters flooded that video with supportive messages too, with over 500 people messaging Richard to let him know how much they enjoy his musical performances.
One said: “The only reason I don’t want this guy to get promoted to regional is so that he can stay in Maccy D’s bringing joy to the customers and staff.”
As someone else added: “I bet you are the best manager ever.”
“Maccas need to give you a pay rise for the entertainment and dealing with the Friday and Saturday night customers,” a third wrote, “this is brilliant”.
