Merry Christmas! Flash Mob Sings 'Hallelujah Chorus'

More than 100 people lend their voices to chorus that assembled in the middle of historic downtown Bethlehem.

A flash mob chorus of more than 100 people literally stopped traffic at Main and Market streets in historic downtown Bethlehem Saturday night to sing the "Hallelujah Chorus" from Handel's Messiah.

Out of a bustling Main Street teeming with holiday shoppers, the chorus appeared to spontaneously assemble and grow in the middle of the street in front of the Goundie House at 505 Main St. as they sang one of the most recognizable melodies of the holiday season.

Hundreds of people—including motorists on either side of Market Street—stopped in their tracks to listen to the unexpected expression of Christmas joy: "Hallelujah!"

The singers included members of the Bach Choir of Bethlehem, numerous church choirs from around the city, the Liberty High School A Capella Choir and 1977 Liberty High School alumni, according to Lynn Collins Cunningham, a vice president for the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce.

So glad I happened upon this, just beautiful. l was taking a break from wrapping my grand-daughters presents, worrying that I didn't have enough. Made me remember what Christmas is really all about. We all have enough.
