A flash mob of over 60 worship singers sing gospel songs at a fast food joint and gets everyone on their feet. The inspiring video was posted on Facebook and has reached over 14 million views since it was posted.

Facebook user Chris Armstead, from Atlanta, posted a video of worship singers starting a flash mob at a local fast food joint. The 3-minute-long video showcases a group of men singing acapella worship songs and getting over 60 customers and gospel singers at Chick-fil-A to join them in singing – even those lining up at the counter. The video went viral gaining over 14 million views on Facebook alone.

The gospel song that was sung in the video was the group's own rendition of “Every Praise” by Hezekiah Walker. It was a tune that got almost everyone on their feet, clapping, swaying, and singing the song of praise.

In an interview with Fox 5, Chris, owner of the video posted, said that the singers were not purely local as many of them came from different countries to attend a religious conference nearby. Attendees came from Australia, South Africa, Brazil, Guatemala, the United Kingdom, and Canada.

“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-plus guys were singing the song."

Chris was astonished at the number of viewers on Facebook grew as each day passed. He was first shocked when it was gaining hundreds of thousands and didn’t expect it to rocket past 14 million views. Flash mobs were not new at Chick-fil-A which is why he didn’t expect the viewers to be at a rampant increase all of a sudden.  Chris is a worship minister for East Cobb Church of Christ in Marietta and works at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in North Druid Hills. However, the location where the video was set was in Nashville during a Worship Leader Institute training.
