In an unsuspecting moment, a mom from Alabama is gaining attention on social media after her video singing a classic gospel tune requested by a friend. Posted three weeks ago, it started going trending on September 8.
A substitute bus driver from Ider, Alabama, Jenny Mann walked into an empty grain bin where she recorded herself singing “How Great Thou Art” and “God Bless America.” She then posted the video on her Facebook page. In a wink of an eye, the post immediately spread like wildfire on the internet. Never did she expect that it would be shared to almost 40,000 times. To date, it has already been viewed 2.4 million times.
A Request of a Friend
In an interview, she revealed what her main reason for posting the video was:
“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.”
To note, Mann is a mother of three, and she often utilizes Facebook to interact with her followers through videos or Facebook Live. In fact, before her viral video singing the classic gospel tune, she already had gained a lot of following from her hilarious weather reports. Most notably, she has done the reports sometimes in foreign accents.
Furthermore, Mann’s stunning rendition of “How Great Thou Art” showed us the other side of this talented mom. Her spot-on vocals and brilliant vibrato will send us chills as we witness this haunting performance in an empty grain bin. The unusual location where she sang made it even more interesting to perform. After singing the gospel song, she followed it up with “God Bless America” and “The Star-Spangled Banner” as requested by some of her friends. Unfortunately, the latter two videos have not received as much attention as the first, but they are definitely worth watching, too.
