Over the past couple of weeks, I've received several notices about this YouTube clip of people at a food court in a Canadian mall breaking out into a performance of the Hallelujah chorus. I didn't have time until today to look at it. Besides, I saw the one where a group sang the La Traviata "Drinking Song" in a mall, so I thought I was pretty much up to date on this concept.
But, I just finished watching this piece of video, and I'm not exactly sure why, but I'm wiping the tears from my eyes. In reading some of the comments on YouTube, I see that I am not alone in my reaction.
