High School Choir Serenades Passengers On Plane

High School Choir Serenades Passengers On Plane

On a plane from Chicago to New York, a talented high school choir gives an in-flight concert and serenades passengers on the plane.


The choir is from Plainfield North, a suburb of Chicago, and they are heading to New York to sing at Carnegie Hall. After meeting the choir, one of the flight attendants on the plane asked the students if they would like to sing a few songs acapella in the air. The students and choir director said that they would love to, and after the drink service, their performance started.

There were about 80 students on the plane. The music director stood in the middle of the aisle, so they were all able to see her while she was conducting them. When all their voices came together, it was quite a heavenly sound!

The second song that the students sang was ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love With You.’ This popular hit was originally recorded by Elvis Presley for his album Blue Hawaii in 1961.

“Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay?
Would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you?”

While the flight attendant is walking up and down the aisle filming the students, you can hear all the different harmonies the students are singing. It is a lovely and full sound, and something very special to see happen on an airplane. It’s not every day that passengers are treated to a concert in the sky!

The students in this high school choir are a dedicated bunch, and their hard work is being recognized by being asked to sing at such a prestigious place. I hope that their voices blessed those passengers on the plane and that they continue to brighten up people’s day with their music.
