Sam’s Club Erupts Into Worship Service, Gospel Song Has Shoppers Singing Along.

You don’t necessarily have to step inside a church to worship. Sometimes, the spirit moves you in the most unexpected ways… and places!

Shoppers at a Dothan, Alabama Sam’s Club found themselves in the midst of a full-on gospel sing-along recently, and thankfully someone was there to capture the amazing moment on video.

Michelle Holland Connor was shopping when she happened upon a woman playing one of the store’s keyboards in the electronics aisle. What came next is nothing short of incredible.

The woman started playing a popular hymn called “My God Is Awesome,” and fellow shoppers stopped to listen. Then they began to sing. The crowd grew and many patrons pulled out their phones to record the moment strangers came together in the middle of a big box store.


One Sam’s Club employee joined in as well, and everyone was stunned by how beautifully her soulful voice suited the gospel song.

My God is awesome
He can move mountains
Keep me in the valley
Hide me from the rain

My God is awesome
Heals me when I’m broken
Gives strength where I’ve been weakened
Forever He will reign

Michelle knew she had to share this inspirational moment, so she posted the video to Facebook along with the caption, “Sometimes you need a little church. Even if it’s in Sam’s Club.”


The video quickly went viral, racking up over 2.6 million views just days after Michelle shared it. Watch the breathtaking video below, but fair warning – you’ll need a box of tissues for sure!

Be sure to share this video with someone who loves to sing!
