Spreading The Joy

I think this is the best flash mob I've ever seen. I really can't watch it without bawling. These singers do such a beautiful job of bringing the Christmas message joyfully to the masses and in such a public way. And it seems the public love it as well.

Tonight I will be singing Handel's Messiah with the Symphony Chorus, including the Hallelujah Chorus. You can bet that I will be thinking about these food court singers and how much joy they brought to those who were lucky enough to hear their performance.  I hope we can deliver the Christmas spirit as well as these fine folks did.

I bet the performance was a great one! And I learned something new about you today that you enjoy singing (and I'm thinking you must be good at it too for being part of a chorus)

I cannot sing and really regret that, because it is such a joyful activity for both participant and listener.

I get chills every time I hear that chorus. Enjoy your weekend!

I've heard that chorus in person. They are really wonderful, and sing with such joy.

A favorite of mine--good luck with your concert! It's so cool that you sing!

I am thinking no other food court has ever seen a performance like that before! Wonderful!

I miss singing that music. We used to sing the Hallelujah Chorus every year at my church in Texas but not here... I am sure your concert brought much joy and beauty to the audience's lives! :)

I enjoyed that! I've yet to see a live flash mob. When I do, I hope it is as wonderful.

I'll bet you enjoyed your performance that you spoke of in this post!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
