Let it shine

One of my coworkers, a guy I love dearly, recently received an award from the local branch of a regional religious group. During his acceptance speech he was talking about how he hopes to continue doing good work for the community, and he abruptly broke into song: “This Little Light”. He only sang a few bars before the whole room joined in, singing and clapping, and when the verse was over everyone cheered.

I just wanted to mention that–it was neat. I can’t imagine I would ever think of singing during a speech. (I’m not sure the people I would likely be giving a speech to would ever join in, either.)
