Lee's Summit school choir sings national anthem on plane

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Choir members for Summit Christian Academy sang their hearts out when they performed at Carnegie Hall in New York. But on their trip back, they had an unusual request.

While on board the plane home, they sang the national anthem after a flight attendant heard they were a choir and asked them to perform for passengers.

“I was sitting across from Miss Lucht, our choir director, and she leaned over and said ‘Hey get up, we’re going to sing,’ and we’re like ‘Ok,’ because half of us are asleep,” choir member Molly Williams said.

“The reaction from the crowd or from other passengers was really awesome. They got their phones out and started recording and I think some of them were probably thinking that was pretty strange,” Lucht said.

A total of 32 students made the trip.
