An impromptu gospel performance gave victims of Hurricane Harvey a lift when they needed it most.
Victoria White and fellow volunteer Marquist Taylor decided to use the power of their voices to provide a small ray of hope to people at an emergency shelter near Houston by belting out a version of the gospel song “Spirit Break Out” on Tuesday.
People sleeping on cots and air-beds at the Lone Star Expo Center in Conroe, Texas, soon began to join in, which was posted on online by volunteer Joni Villemez-Comeaux.
“I had no idea this was being recorded, but God had a plan!” White wrote on Facebook. “Not only did He want to love on those gathered in Lone Star Expo Center who suffered loss at the hands of Hurricane Harvey, but He wanted to love on people across the world who were dealing with their own personal storms! That’s the kind of loving God we serve — the kind who is equally concerned for the masses and the individual!”
