Over 60 male a cappella singers recently took over a Nashville, TN Chick-fil-A restaurant to spread the gospel in the middle of a lunch rush, to the excitement of much of the establishment, who began singing and clapping along with the flash mob.
The diverse group of Christian men consisted of worshipers from all over, including U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, South Africa, Brazil and Guatemala, according to CBS News. Their song of choice was Hezekiah Walker’s “Every Praise.”
Chris Armstead, who was with the group of singers, says the large group was in Nashville for a conference on worship and song leading.
“The conference was hosted nearby at Maddison Church of Christ in Nashville. The Chick-fil-A is maybe a mile and half away… we all carpooled up there,” Armstead said. “We started placing our orders and as the food started to come out we just kicked it off.”
Armstead, a worship minister at East Cobb Church of Christ in Marietta, Georgia, says the music won’t stop there.
“I’ll definitely be teaching the song ‘Every Praise’ to the congregation very soon. Maybe we’ll try to do some flash mobs at local Chick-fil-A locations here in Atlanta.”
