SPRING HILL, Tenn. (WKRN) – There was a touching display of patriotism Monday night in Spring Hill as a local choir group sang the national anthem at several public locations.
Holly Redfern captured the moment on video at the store on Main Street and shared it on Facebook where it eventually made its way to the WKRN Facebook page.
Amy Hall with Spring Hill HarMoniX told WKRN she organized the group that sang at four locations including Spring Hill City Hall, Target, Walmart and Lowe’s.
“It was a very impromptu moment. We wanted to spread some love and cheer and unity and I think we’ve done that,” Hall said. “People got what was happening and they just stopped and they took in the moment.”
She added the performance at city hall had been planned for weeks, it just happened to be a few days after the Chattanooga shooting.
But she told WKRN after the performance, the group was so moved they decided to move on to other businesses to perform the anthem.
“We said we really just need to do something publicly. If those guys can be killed publicly, we can do something to honor them publicly,” Hall said, adding, “I love that our national anthem is being heard over and over and over on everybody’s computers and on their phones. I just can’t see anything but good coming out of that, so I’m pleased.”
Hall shared videos of all four performances with WKRN. Watch the videos at the bottom of the story.
