A few gospel singers brought full-on church to a hurricane relief shelter in Texas.
We’re talking your worship leader’s dream kind-of worship!
The incredible praise was live-streamed on Facebook from the Lone Star Expo Center in Conroe, Texas.
Lead vocalist Victoria White, Marquist Taylor and others joined in a circle to lift up a song to the Lord and lift the spirits of those in the shelter, as reported by the Daily Mail.
If I didn’t know better, I would’ve thought I was listening to a gospel track recorded in a studio. (Can we make that happen, Spotify?)
White’s voice, along with those who sang with her, is amazing – like chills and tears.
White took to social media after to share:
“Y’all, THE GOSPEL IS GOING VIRAL!!! This blows me AWAY (and that’s no easy task)!” she wrote. “I had no idea this was being recorded, but God had a plan! Not only did He want to Love on those gathered in Lonestar Expo Center who suffered loss at the hands of Hurricane Harvey, but He wanted to love on people across the world who were dealing with their own personal storms!”
Joni Villemez-Comeaux, a shelter volunteer, recorded a shorter clip and uploaded it to her Facebook page. That video, uploaded on Tuesday night along with a line of text that read, “So this just broke out in the shelter,” has already attracted 11 million views.
She posted pictures and a message about her special birthday:
“I had the opportunity to see up close and personal the resiliency of the human Spirit alongside THE most compassionate volunteers,” she wrote. “Then walks in Victoria White and friends. This woman’s powerful voice, singing praise, lifted the Spirit of all within earshot. Hard to believe but close to a million people have already viewed this beautiful Soul spreading her gift. You’re such a blessing….”
I’ll admit, when I first heard it, I couldn’t just listen to them, I had to join in, and I can only imagine how many others, from around the United States joined them in their worship, too.
Here they are, many of them have nothing but the clothes on their backs, and they’re enthusiastically praising Jesus.
If that isn’t a testimony of the church, then I don’t know what is.
