'Hallelujah' flash mob mall video goes viral

WELLAND — A 'flash mob' that stunned patrons in Seaway Mall's food court has become an overnight YouTube hit.

More than 80 Chorus Niagara singers went from quietly blending into the busy mall atmosphere to belting out a classic Christmas carol to the shock and amazement of mallgoers.

After the Nov. 13 performance of Handel's Messiah was released online Thursday by creators Alphabet Photography Inc., the video became an instant hit online.

Since being posted at about 11 a.m. Thursday, the video, Christmas Food Court Flash Mob, has received more than 16,000 hits on YouTube, said Jennifer Blakeley, owner of Alphabet Photography. ...

Everyone is so amazed that this happened. It was planned, they had permission and an entire choir of atleast 80 people were waiting to join in. But so what, call it "staged" if you will, or even "fake". Regardless, it's a nicely sung version. Enjoy it, nobody was harmed.

Absolutely fabulous!!!! Praise be to God that there are those who still believe in CHRISTMAS and not a "winter holiday". Time to take back the political correctness that spurred this disgusting rejection of all that is beautiful about this season.

As I was scarcely able to hold back tears sitting in front of my computer, sure am I that I would have been weeping into my pizza slice were I there at the food court. One of the noticeably wonderful things about this incident was, all of the people holding up recording devices and smiling; and the amazement of the few children in attendance.
I am certainly saving this for those who cannot see it.

Greetings brothers and sisters in Christ! What these singers have done has truly blessed me. I am thankful that the joy of The LORD, has been shared with people around the world. God loves us, therefore we should share His love with one another. Our Savior shall never leave us nor forsake us, He has made a way for us. He is thoroughly purging His threshing floor. The doors that He opens, no one can close. The doors that He shuts, no one can open. May God help we and our families to walk in the light! May God help us not to have unrighteous anger, but to bless those who are against us! May God bless us all tonight! Sleep tight!

Since the KING JAMES VERSION of God's Holy Word was the only Bible available for most of the last four centuries - it takes little intelligence to work out why it became "ecumenically" used by ALL denominations.

Even Indian Hills Community Church started with the KJV, Jimmy boy!

But note well Jim that God used this Bible the KJV also for many centuries, and continues to do so in HIS congregations.

2. Careful with the "betting" Jim - Christians Don't do that sin!
They trust in God's Holy Providence to provide all their needs - including the Bibles we use.

I would almost bet that Handel wouldn't mind if the orotund lyrics were replaced with vibrant, modern, and most importantly, understandable lyrics.

So, do you like or not the 'flash mob' surprise singing of Handel Messiah in the mall food court?

And if you don't are you finding fault with those of us who have enjoyed it?

Ah, just like the [URL=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Authorized_King_James_Version]]]Authorized King James Version[/URL], Handel's Messiah has a ecumenical history,

wrote:
Handel conducted Messiah many times and often altered the music to suit the needs of the singers and orchestra he had available to him for each performance. In consequence, no single version can be regarded as the "authentic" one. Many more variations and rearrangements were added in subsequent centuries—a notable arrangement was one by Mozart[6], K. 572, translated into German. In the Mozart version a French horn replaces the trumpet on 'The Trumpets shall sound', even though Luther's bible translation uses the word Posaune, German for trombone.

She organized and directed the performances, in which the chorus lead the audience...singing Handel's 'Messiah'...
