NASHVILLE, Tenn. – An Atlanta man’s video of an a cappella flash mob at a Chick-fil-A has gone viral.
It happened at the Rivergate Chick-fil-A in Nashville, Tennessee last Saturday around lunchtime.
More than 60 male a cappella worship leaders from seven nations had gathered for a week-long conference, Worship Leader Institute, hosted by Acappella Ministries and its founder Keith Lancaster. The students attending the conference lead their churches in a cappella worship services without instrumental accompaniment.
The Worship Leader Institute conference was held at the Madison Church of Christ in Nashville. Several years ago, a tradition began for conference attendees to eat lunch together at a nearby Chick-fil-A either during the conference or before going home. That’s when they started group flash mobs.
The article goes on to state the following:
Chris Armstead, of Atlanta, was among the a cappella worship leaders and told FOX 5’s Katie Burk everyone sat around at tables and booths in the restaurant after placing their orders. Then, the singing began.
“The first group, including the leader, began the flash mob by standing up to start the song at their table, and then the other groups stood in succession at their tables/booths to join into the song at predefined times until all 60+ guys were singing the song,” Armstead said.
Armstead shared a video of the performance on Facebook last weekend, and it quickly went viral with more than 8-million views and nearly 100,000 shares.
