Hallelujah! Flash mob hits mall food court
Ontario singers spread Christmas cheer
Diners at a shopping mall food court in Ontario, Canada, were surprised when those sitting around them burst into song – Georg Friedrich Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus” from the oratorio,”The Messiah” – but now a video of the event is attracting roughly 500,000 views every day.
Not bad for a tune not quite 300 years old.
The performance at the Seaway Mall near Niagara Falls had been set up by a company whose founder wanted to thank customers and spread cheer at this Christmas holiday season.
Jennifer Blakely, who with her husband Sam runs Alphabet® Photography, came up with the idea and wanted simply to thank company customers and cheer others during the Christmas holiday, company spokesman Chris Dabrowski told WND.
She contacted a local community choir, a non-profit that has been performing for a number of years, made arrangements with the mall, and launched the plan. …
Dabrowski said the project took about eight weeks of planning and rehearsals and there were seven cameras in the mall’s food court to capture the result.
