High Schoolers See A Fallen Soldier Being Escorted Off The Plane And Break Into Hymn

February 28, 2017

On her return flight to Atlanta, Diane Hollified Cupp experienced something she will never forget.

When the flight from Germany landed, the captain announced that an Army private was on board escorting the remains of a WWII soldier to his final resting place in Houston, Texas. And this person would get the privilege to get off the plane first.

As the soldier's remains were transported, members of the Iowa Ambassadors of Music choir spontaneously sang a beautiful rendition of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" in his honor.

"The pilot announced he would be exiting the plane first, as he got up to leave there were a group of young people who had been on tour in Europe all of a sudden they broke out singing Glory Hallelujah," Cupp wrote. "Listen how beautiful !! Will bring a tear to your eye."
