Australian-born singer and songwriter Sia spread some Thanksgiving cheer last week by paying for customers’ purchases at a Walmart in Palm Springs.
Sia, born Sia Kate Isobelle Furler, is known among fans for her signature wig and oversized hair bow style.
The singer and music video director is often seen performing with most of her face covered in a black-and-white wig.
Her mysterious and outlandish style has left fans fascinated about the person underneath the costume.
Given her face-covering style, it made sense that when Sia walked into a Walmart in Palm Springs, California, as herself sans-wig, nobody thought twice about who she was.
The singer, apparently ready for some holiday fun, pulled out her payment card and began cheerfully paying for the items in several Walmart customers’ carts.
As people began to take notice of what she was doing, the celebrity told curious observers that her name was “just Ci Ci.”

Video from a customer who did recognize her showed Sia chatting with a toddler in a grocery cart when someone walked up and handed her a bouquet of flowers as a way to show appreciation for her kindness.

It is unclear how many orders Sia paid for, but the video showed her walking to several payment stations while asking, “Who’s next?”
According to Today, Sia also did the same for customers at a Palm Springs T.J. Maxx.
For the shoppers who encountered Sia this Thanksgiving, it was likely a holiday to remember.
