Great idea. Wish I could have been there.

Layton, ut

Awesome. Would've been great to be there.

Lake Elsinore, CA

Priceless. Imagine the stories that are going to be shared by those who were there.

That is about the coolest dang thing I've ever heard of! Man, I would have loved to have been there for that. What a cool idea! Kudos to those who put it together. And thanks for the video.

Very cool. Wish I would have been there.

More Mormon flash mobs!

Holladay, UT

Shoot me first.

The MoTab as a "flash mob"? Umm, no. As a great event, a "surprise"? Yes, indeed.


Shaka---Hana hou.

Love, love, LOVE the Mormon Tabernacle Choir! Some may claim foolishness over what we believe but there's no disputing we have one of the greatest choirs the world has ever known.


American Fork, UT

this was great to watch, how fun. May I request one thing as a correction to your story? They sang 'Yankee Doodle' not 'Yankee Doodle Dandy'.

Farnsworth- do you know what a flash mob is? FYI a flash mob is a preplanned event where people in a public place seem to spontaneously break into song, kinda like in a musical. They've been done in grocery stores and Grand Central station. Look it up on youtube and you can watch some.

Florissant, MO

That was totally awesome. I would have to guess that this flash mob group had the oldest people, just glad they didn't try to dance. Thanks for sharing that DN.


Hey; Guy With A Brain, Pay no attention to any arrogant stool sample that scoffs at another s faith, religion or beliefs. I've seen and heard enough of that. If your faith serves you and you serve your faith and cause no harm to any peaceable creature your not going to eat or take more than you can use, I believe God will bless you. I don't share your religion or any other. I hope you don't mind if I share your belief and faith in Christ and his Dad, who gave me an awesome sunrise this morning. Keep the Faith. Aloha; Rick

AGH! I wish I had been there. Colonial Williamsburg has a special place in my heart.

What an exiting experience for the people who were present... too bad the media in this country is so liberal that we don't see this as prominent as articles about trusting Mormons with the presidency, etc.

This is awesome!

Santa Cruz, CA

It thrilled me to watch the ten minute video and to know what was happening. I love the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Every member is a devoted servant of God, and their voices show that. One year on their summer tour, they were in Memphis (I think). A young girl in treatment for cancer at St. Jude's Hospital had the thrill of her life to hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (or a large number of them) sing just to her alone. What a blessing! The Choir broadcasts regularly on BYUTV, and that is another blessing!
The Choir has a long history, and over time, many members have gone along to sing in Heaven. That's something that I look forward to seeing and hearing them there -- I'm 86, and this could happen any time! God Bless the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Springville, UT

This is pretty cool. I love Williamsburg and consider it almost as a second home. I've seen a lot of these street performances, but this one is awesome!

To "Supporting LDS Church", however, stop injecting political philosophy into things like this. Liberals are patriotic and love the country. These are not principles restricted to conservatives, and conservatives are not the only ones who love God and country.

Santa Monica, CA

To "Supporting LDS Church"--You are actually NOT supporting your church when you put forth notions that liberal people aren't as patriotic as you are. I am a Big D Democrat and I served 3 years in the Armed Forces of our country (USMC-74-77). I pay my taxes and vote in every election and try to really be a part of the electoral process. My family lost a loved member to combat. Finally, I am not a Mormon and I don't even care for organized religion very much--(having run into too many representatives like yourself), but I got chills watching this and it made my morning.

Thank you Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Fair Thinker

After DesNews rejecting a simlple comment of "Lame, lame, lame!", I will be more elaborate so their moderator is satisified.

As Farnsworth said, this is not a "flash mob" experience. While no one knew they were going to be there and may have been surprised, by an uplifting experience. If you do as Sarah B suggests and watch other flash mob videos, unexpected singing by a group of people, even if they MoTab, just doesn't cut it. So in short, this was "lame, lame, lame". (Is that a good enough explanation for you DesNews???)

This title of the article should be "Mormon Tabernacle Choir Surprises Williambsburg Tourists". Just as "FaceBook" became uncool when your Mom got and started trying to leave posts on your wall, "Flash Mobs" became uncool when the Mormon Tabernacle Choir thinks they are a flash mob after doing this.
