Customers at packed restaurant all stand and join in as local high school choir sings national anthem

Customers at a restaurant in Arkansas stood up from their tables to honor the national anthem when they were visited by a high school choir from Mena.

The Skyline Cafe was packed with customers when the Mena High School Spotlight choir started to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner.” A video posted by Shannon Clifford on Facebook shows that all of the customers stood in unison and sang together. Clifford wrote that even the people on the waiting list at the restaurant joined in. The video has since gone viral, with nearly 1,000 shares and 54,000 views.

“The world stops spinning just a minute!” the caption to the video aptly reads.

The comments on the Facebook video speak volumes about how much the event meant, not only to the patrons but also to those who viewed it online.

As a Veteran, this means so much to me!” James Wasson wrote. “What a lift for our patriotic spirit! God bless you for sharing,” Barbara Forest wrote. Anginette Echols, a Navy veteran, wrote, “It makes me really happy to know skyline cafe hasn’t changed. I love this video. Thanks for sharing!”

Several wrote about how proud they are to be from the small town. Residents of small towns, like Mena, often support the young people who are growing up in their community, but it’s heartwarming to see them join together as the national anthem is sung.
