On board Delta airlines, Diane Hollifield Cupp captures a heartwarming moment when a high school choir sings for a fallen soldier as his remains were taken off a plane. According to Cupp, an army private was escorting the remains of a World War II soldier back from Germany all the way to Houston.
The touching moment took place when the pilot announced that the soldier would be exiting the plane first. The students who were part of the Iowa Ambassadors of Music Choir, returning from Europe then stood up and began to serenade the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” for the fallen soldier. “Glory, glory hallelujah,” the choir students sung as they melted the hearts of all the passengers on the plane.
If you look at the video closely, you can see a man in the front acting as a conductor for the choir. Upon finishing their song, passengers on board gave the students a round of applause. Diane Cupp, who filmed the touching moment, wrote on Facebook, “On our flight from Germany there was a Army private in uniform that so happen to be escorting the remains of a WW11 Soldier back home to Houston . The pilot announced he would be exiting the plane first, as he got up to leave there were a group of young people who had been on tour in Europe all of a sudden they broke out singing Glory Hallelujah. Listen how beautiful !! Will bring a tear to your eye.”
