A young boy’s love of gospel music may have saved his life.

Earlier this month, the police said a man kidnapped a 10-year-old Willie Myrick by allegedly luring him with cash and then, when he was close enough, grabbed him and pulled him into his car around southwest Atlanta driveway, Atlanta, Georgia – USA and he drove the boy around for some time before dropping him off unharmed in East Point.

But Willie’s actions during those terrifying three hours are inspiring people around the world. Willie says he sang the gospel song Every Praise until the man let him go.

Thursday evening, community leaders held a meeting in Willie’s honor, celebrating his happy ending, but also telling other parents and children what to do if this happens to them.
In front of a crowded sanctuary at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church, Willie recounted the moment he was freed from the car. Willie said while he was singing, the man kept cursing and telling him to shut up before eventually kicking him out.
“He opened the door and threw me out,” Willie said. “He told me not to tell anyone.”

Willie’s story traveled fast and soon caught the ear of Grammy Award-winning gospel singer Hezekiah Walker — the man who performed the song.
“It’s just emotional to me because you never know who you’re going to touch,” Walker told 11Alive’s Blayne Alexander.

Upon hearing the story, Walker made the decision to fly from New York City to Atlanta to meet Willie.
“I just wanted to hug him and tell him I love him,” Walker said.
Thursday evening, the singer entered the sanctuary of Mt. Carmel Baptist Church to a standing ovation, grabbing Willie into a tight hug as tears streamed down the boy’s face. Walker then led the church, and Willie, in singing Every Praise.
“I really believe that God spoke through me to save that young man’s life,” Walker said.
