Famous A Cappella Group Surrounded Fast Food Worker, What Happened Next Made Her Day!

Indiana University has a very special asset to the school: Straight No Chaser!


The professional a cappella group SNC, created in 1996, is nothing short of spectacular! In 2006, a 1998 video of “The 12 Days of Christmas,” became so popular that its sales lead led to a five-album record deal with Atlantic Records in 2008. Since then, the video on YouTube has been viewed over 19 million times!

But these kids aren’t just gifted with angelic vocals. While passing through Kentucky, they decided to share their heartthrob talents with some hard-working fast food employees at the local Hardees.

The song of choice? “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King – the perfect classic that can really brighten anyone’s day with its upbeat melody and smooth lyrical notes. The soloists, Luke Mechling and Corey Frye, give the performance an ever bigger “umph!”

They caught the whole thing on camera. It’s clear to see they absolutely love making those employees smile and create a ‘high note’ of their day!

Here’s the Takeaway: The smallest of things that you do selflessly for strangers – like singing a song – can share so much happiness! How will you spread that joy today?
