(Boy Sang Gospel Song Until Kidnapper Released Him)

This is an inspirational story about Willie Myrick who was allegedly abducted by an unknown man in Atlanta, USA. The boy sang a Gospel song non-stop for three hours, which irritated his kidnapper so much that he eventually released him.

According to an April 18, 2014, article by the New York Daily News, an unknown man used cash to lure young Myrick close enough to grab & force the boy into his vehicle on the evening of March 31.

During his close to 3 hour ordeal, Myrick repeatedly sang "Every Praise," a Gospel song by Hezekiah Walker, a song he learned in Sunday school.

While he was singing, Willie said his kidnapper yelled expletives at him. "He told me, shut up &%#* boy," said Willie. He, however, kept singing until his kidnapper got tired.

The kidnapper opened the car door, released Myrick & warned him not to tell anyone. That was one order that Myrick refused to obey & he has been telling the world about the incident since his release.

When Hezekiah Walker got news of this, he flew from New York to meet with Myrick & his church family at the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in southwest Atlanta to celebrate the boy's 10th birthday.

Walker received a standing ovation when he gave a hug to Willie as the boy cried as he met his favorite singer. The article said that everybody present joined in the singing of "the life-saving song together as tears rolled down Myrick's cheeks." ( &

"Every Praise" (Lyrics)

Every praise is to our God.
Every word of worship with one accord
Every praise every praise is to our God.

Sing hallelujah to our God
Glory hallelujah is due our God
Every praise every praise is to our God.

God, my Savior
God, my Healer
God, my Deliverer
Yes He is, yes He is.

2Ch 20:22 (CEV): "As soon as they began singing, the LORD confused the enemy camp."
