A Chick-fil-A in Nashville was filled with a flash mob of 60 male a cappella singers on Saturday who belted out a gospel song for fellow patrons at the fast food restaurant.
Chris Armstead, who was with the group of singers, says they were in the area for a conference on worship and song leading. Armstead filmed the performance and shared it on Facebook. The video went viral, with over 8 million views and counting.
Armstead tells CBS news this is not the first a capella flash mob that the Chick-fil-A has seen. In 2016, a group of singers attending the annual Worship Leader Institute conference got lunch together at the nearby Chick-fil-A. They decided to start a flash mob while there and began singing the gospel song “I Woke Up This Morning,” their harmonious voices filling the restaurant.
This year’s flash mob consisted of over 60 men from several different countries including the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, South Africa, Brazil and Guatemala, Armstead says. They chose to sing Hezekiah Walker’s “Every Praise” song a cappella in SATB four-part harmony.
