That's one small step for man, one giant leap Khalid.
On Sunday (July 11), the 23-year-old singer premiered his new song "New Normal" during Virgin Galactic's spaceflight launch at Spaceport America in New Mexico. Introduced by late-night TV show host Stephen Colbert during a livestream broadcast of Sir Richard Branson's historic visit to space, Khalid debuted the dreamy song in front of a small crowd at the spaceport, located near Truth and Consequences.
Dressed in a shiny black-and-white jacket and flanked by his backing band, the singer also performed his hit tracks "Better" and "Talk." After the three-song set, Khalid was interviewed by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, who asked him about the overall experience of performing at the historic space launch.
