You never know when you’re going to be in the right place at the right time. Even the smallest of acts can make a positive difference in someone’s day.
Chick-fil-A employees have been known to make those differences quite often. Now their patrons are joining in and putting smiles on customers’ faces.
A group of a cappella singers was caught brightening the mood at a Nashville, Tennessee, Chick-fil-A close to Rivergate Mall.
A viral video posted by singer Jake Jones has caught the attention of social media users everywhere. With nearly 1 million views to date, the flash mob may just go down in Chick-fil-A history.
“A group of us from Acappella’s Worship Leader Institute went to the Rivergate Chik-fil-a in Nashville TN. and this happened!” Jones wrote in the video’s caption.
The institute, founded by Keith Lancaster, aims to equip church music leaders with an education in a cappella worship.
“We feel it is our mission in life to spread God’s awesome news through the talents and gifts He’s given us,” Jones told Fox News. “What better way than to lift people up in song!”
This group did exactly that. Watch as they come together in signing “Lean on Me” — an arrangement with a four-part harmony prepared by Lancaster himself!
“The flash mob was planned to encourage patrons and employees at the Chick-Fil-A. We’ve noticed every time we do something like this, people comment on the videos saying, ‘This is just what I needed,’ ‘We need more of this,’ and ‘Why can’t we have more of this in the world?’ We never know who will be touched through this,” Jones shared with Fox News.
We’ve seen others break out into song while eating the “Lord’s chicken” before, of course. A video of an employee in Kansas singing “God Bless the USA” went viral in 2015.
Another more recent instance of singing at a Chick-fil-A occurred when a group of worship leaders sang “Every Praise.”
Liftable, a section of The Western Journal, reached out the Jake Jones for comment. We will update this article if and when we receive a response.
