Flight Attendant Lorde Royals


Robynn Shayne is a flight attendant for American Airlines. She’s also a musical talent whose cover of Lorde’s “Royals” is so good, Lorde herself is a fan! It all started when Shayne’s colleague Nick Stracener posted a video clip of Shayne performing on a recent flight.

Stracener wrote, “On a lovely winter day I came across my coworker Robynn who I noticed was carrying a guitar with her on our trip. I then asked her if she played and she said she loves to play and sing. Then this happened. Let’s get this video viral for her and get her a record deal!”

Sure enough, the clip gained some traction online, eventually getting picked up by Jezebel. When the site posted Shayne’s video, Lorde retweeted it. She wrote, “Robynn, I love you.” Needless to say, Shayne was thrilled with the endorsement. “Thanks for the shout out! Love ya back!” answered the gifted airline staffer.
