    I LOVE THIS!!! I’m gonna try to talk our youth group into doing something like this over the holidays…maybe nothing as ambitious as the ‘Hallelujah Chorus ‘, however. I always stand when this song is sung. Wonder if any of these people listening knew the tradition behind standing for the ‘Chorus’?

    That made me smile, actually it made me grin from ear to ear :-)

  3. VA-Cathy

    I wonder how many were with the choir and how many joined in.

  4. bettyrwoodward

    I’m sure some of the crowd were joining in as well. I’m sure I would have too. Made me smile. Thank you.

    Love love love the video!!!!

    Just want to tell all you Babybloomr addicts to have a fine Thanksgiving Day! Eat too much, thank God profusely, and enjoy some good company!

  6. jonny

    Yup, happy Thanksgiving everyone = ) I’m grateful Tori asked me to stick around after dropping by once. Thankfully, life has not been the same ever since !! = )

  7. LindaB

    We’re glad you stayed too, Small-j jonny!!! You bring just the right amount of “coolness” to Tori’s fantastic blog!!! I don’t know if Finland has a comparable Thanksgiving Day, but it’s a good idea to be thankful EVERYDAY, as I believe you are! So, have a great thankful day today!

  8. LindaB

    Oh Tori!! I made a “tablescape” today!!!! I’m so proud of myself, I just keep looking at it!!! It’s not perfect yet, but my Candy is coming over soon and she’s got the gift of “artiness”! She’ll help me!

  9. jonny

    Well, coolness comes in pairs ! Just look at Adam and Eve !! No. Wait. Scratch that. Well … How about Cain and Able !!! = D Oh, wait … Probably not the best example either = / Well, I guess that just leaves the two of us then on this wonderful, God-Given mommy blog… thingy !! = )

  11. jonny

    Bonnie and Clyde ??

  12. LindaB

    Bonnie Raitt and B.B. King??

  13. jonny

    So, who’s Bonnie, and who’s B. B. ?? I always thought I’d make a good red head … = )

  14. jonny

    OH ! I got it !! ROBERT PLANT and ALISON KRAUSS !!!!! <3 <3 <3

  15. LindaB


    (Aren’t they terrific together? I love ‘em!)

  16. rachelbaker

    Well we don’t have thanksgiving but I’m thankful for a lot of things – including jonny and LindaB. I will always have Robert Plant and Alison Krauss in my mind when I think of you two now :-)

    I hope all you Americans had a very happy day.

  17. jonny

    As you should, rachelbaker; as you should.

  18. LindaB

    Thank you, Rachel! We did indeed have a good day of thanksgiving, praising, and eating ourselves into a heart attack. But it was good!

    Small j jonny, Alanna and I always sing Bonnie and B.B.’s hit song, “Baby, I Love You” in the car while driving, and I always sing B.B.’s part. So, I guess I’ll be B.B. ’cause I know his part now……..real well…….we do a lot of driving! And I’m sure red hair will look good on you.

  19. jonny

    Have we just been officially Devil Spammed ??

  20. rachelbaker

    Seems that way jonny – not the first time either – Tori has efficiently removed them before – but they have been more dodgy and offensive than this one – which just seems plain bizarre!

  21. LindaB

    We haven’t heard from Tori for a awhile—-maybe she’s in trouble with the law in Oklahoma………maybe she was caught stealing pumpkin stems!

  22. rachelbaker

    Ha! Yes, a cryptic clue to help us to come to her rescue.

  23. jonny

    You’re sooo on top of it, LB !! OK, now to see if I can find that Bonnie and B. B. song on YouTube to see if I can do red’s part…

  24. LindaB

    You’ll HAVE to do Bonnie’s part, jonny—–you’ve got longer and nicer hair than I do!!!! B.B.’s more my speed……and figure! LOL

  25. LindaB

    I found it!! ( http://www.bing.com/videos/watch/video/baby-i-love-you-b-b-king-featuring-bonnie-raitt/af08b27f17aef5fda0a0af08b27f17aef5fda0a0-314480853115?q=Bonnie%20Raitt%20and%20B.%20B.%20King )

    Wow! That’s a long web address, isn’t it? Couldn’t find a video of them singing. They must be camera shy.

  26. jonny

    I found one YouTube clip of them singing together live. Different song, though.

  27. LindaB

    Was it “Night Life”? I found that one too.

  28. jonny

    Yep, Night Life. And… No more Devil Spam !! = )

  29. Barbara M. Lloyd

    Can’t tell you how much I enjoyed that clip…took me back to when I was in a choir that sang it at Christmas one year…..and it always brings tears to my eyes. Didn’t it thrill y’all to see those people standing and then at the end raising their hands to the Lord?!!! Loved it…just oved it.

    You know, we all have so many blessings in our lives that it takes 365 days of each year to thank Him. The only thing missing on 364 days are the turkey/dressing/and gravy.

    Now I’m anxious to go try and find those sweet Taff girls’ comments in response to our questions about texting. And, by the way, I betcha Tori and her crew are enjoying the holiday with her parents.

  30. Lisa Strickland

    I just LOVED this. I found myself laughing out with joy, at the same time eyes full of tears. It does my heart good to see Gods people stand up and proclaim Him in public. Thanks so much for sharing this Tori. Love you bunches!

  31. LindaB

    I just watched this video again………there’s something “holy” and “anointed” about Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus”, isn’t there? It gives me goosebumps EVERY TIME I hear it! I’m like you, Lisa—-makes my heart swell with joy and my eyes tear up at the same time! Makes my knees weak too——makes me want to fall down on them and worship the “King of Kings and Lord of Lords”!!! Hallelujah indeed!

  32. Barbara M. Lloyd

    Oh Linda, I keep coming back and watching this video over and over and it makes me cry tears of joy everytime. At a time when our world is in such uncertainty, it thrills my heart to see this open and unexpected demonstration of prasing our Lord. What better uplifting experience than something like this? Thank you, sweet Tori.
