On a recent flight from Germany to Atlanta, an Army private was escorting the remains of a World War II soldier when a youth choir who happened to be onboard joined in to offer a touching tribute.
“There was a Army private in uniform that so happen to be escorting the remains of a WWII Soldier back home to Houston,” wrote Diane Hollifield Cupp, in a Facebook post. “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.“
The students were part of the Iowa Ambassadors of Music Choir sang, according to The Daily Mail, and sang the “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”
“Listen how beautiful,” wrote Hollifield Cupp. “Will bring a tear to your eye.”
“What a wonderful final send off for this brave soldier who bravely fell no doubt in battle,” a commenter wrote on Facebook.
