As locals at a coffee shop in Canada sat enjoying their hot beverages right before the holidays, they had no idea that they were in for a wonderful surprise that would that would spread cheer throughout the room.
Without notice a man, who was actually the children's music teacher, walks into the coffee shop with a guitar and starts strumming out the beginning of 'Happy Christmas' by John Lennon. Everyone looks up in surprise wondering what is going on just as two kids stand up and start singing at the top of their lungs. Then two more stand up, one with a tambourine, and join in the song. Two by two, more young musicians join in, singing in beautiful harmony.
Just when you think they are all in, another guitar player comes through the other doors playing and singing along, and even more kids jump in. Thirteen talented young musicians in total join in on singing and playing this amazing John Lennon song to spread holiday cheer to children and elderly in the coffee shop. Smiles are everywhere and everyone is feeling that warm fuzzy feeling.
The song ends with a big applause as everyone sits back down and goes on like nothing has happened.
This amazing flash mob took place in Port Colborne, Ontario, Canada which is a small town of less than twenty thousand people on Lake Erie. This coffee shop was chosen because it is often filled with retirees and young families. This group of young talented musicians are music students from The Music Depot in Port Colborne. They were supposed to be in the Christmas parade, but due to bad weather, they decided to flash mob this coffee shop and bring some Holiday cheer.
