here are times in this cynical world of missing planes and growing national deficits that something truly extraordinary happens to restore our faith in humanity. Earlier this month, a kidnapped nine year old boy was released by his kidnapper after he kept singing one gospel song.
Nine-year-old Willie Myrick from Atlanta, Georgia was kidnapped earlier this month from his driveway and driven around for over three hours. During the three hour ordeal, Myrick sang Hezekiah Walker’s “Every Priase”. According to Myrick, he was eventually released following his singing demonstration and told to not tell anyone of what occurred.
Last Thursday (April 16th), community leaders at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church held a meeting to celebrate Myrick’s heroic ordeal. Walker appeared during the event to speak directly with the boy who used his song to save his own life.
