“Journey Janitor” becomes a global sensation

The so-called “Journey Janitor” who brought down the stage at an Indiana Elementary School graduation is now a worldwide sensation.

When you hear it, it’s no surprise why his version of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’ has been viewed and adored more than 10 million times.

“It’s humbling and fun, but I’m still the same person,” said Richard Goodall, 53, who has served in prisons for 20 years.

“I will always be me, just me.”

The teachers know that Goodall can sing, so they always encourage him to go on stage at school events.

“For me, that’s part of my job,” says Goodall. “I’m not just the guy who wipes the tables and picks up the trash, I like it when people smile and are happy.”

Goodall even got a message from former Journey frontman Steve Perry, who shared the video on Twitter and wrote, “Love this.”

The band echoed those sentiments on TikTok.

“I was in tears because I grew up listening to this stuff, the people I listened to,” says Goodall.

“I have no formal education. I’ve never been to college. When I was a kid, I had speakers all over my bedroom.

Goodall says he chose “Don’t Stop Believin” to inspire 5th graders.

He’s not quitting his job just yet, but says he’s open to any singing opportunities that might come his way.
