American choir delights Glasgow passengers on delayed flight by breaking into song

15

Glasgow passengers on a delayed flight from San Diego to London were offered a very unique take on in-flight entertainment.

A video posted by Instagram user Flytsnapz, also known as Adam Gray, shows a choir breaking into stunning song on the stationary British Airways flight.

The plane was delayed due to a technical issue with communications, so was grounded on the tarmac.

The choir sang a song called Shosholoza, a Nguni song that was sung by the mixed tribes of gold miners in South Africa, to “keep the spirits of the other passengers up” said Adam.

Adam told Glasgow Live: “My wife Bernie and I were travelling back to London to get our flight back home to Glasgow.

“We were not part of the choir, it just happened as a coincidence.

“I think it was the Valhalla Choir from San Diego who were travelling to London as part of a tour. They were supposed to come to Scotland but couldn’t get a direct flight, so decided to go to London and Iceland instead.”

The choir are on their way to tour London and Scandinavia.

The video shows a mask-clad conductor standing to conduct the seated choir members, with some dancing in their chairs as well as clapping and clicking.

At the end of the video the other passengers cheer and shout – and Adam said their singing was very “well received” and described it as “something positive in a world of selfishness”.

Well done Valhallah Vocal Choir!
