Woman goes viral after a friend asks to make a video of her singing

An Alabama woman became a media star after a video of her singing went viral.

Jenny Mann became a media star when she walked into an empty grain silo and recorded herself singing the traditional hymns “How Great Thou Art” and “God Bless America.”  

She recorded herself singing, and posted the video on her Facebook page, jenny.w.mann, where it has garnered over 2 million views and been shared more than 30,000 times by admiring fans.

Mann often posts amusing weather reports, sometimes done in foreign accents, but this was her first experience with posting songs.

“I posted the video for a friend of mine who loves the song, but never expected anything like the response I’ve received. I’m always singing in places with good acoustics, so this was nothing out of the ordinary for me.”

Jenny Mann, Country Music Family,  September 2018.

MANN WAS ASTOUNDED BY THE RESPONSE

Mann, a substitute bus driver from Ider, sang the song for a friend who loves it, and never expected to find herself turned into an Internet celebrity.

The mother of three explained that she simply took advantage of the silo's incredible acoustics to perform two old classic hymns which she loves.

AN EERY PERFORMANCE OF AN INSPIRING SONG

In the video, Mann steps into the silo and raises a crystal clear voice that is enhanced by the perfect acoustics of the empty grain silo.  

MANN POSTED TWO MORE VIDEOS

Encouraged by the success of her first "single," Mann has recorded and posted two more videos of herself and friends singing “God Bless The USA” and “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
