Kidnapped in a mysterious van, Willie Myrick managed to "escape" in the most unexpected way ever. See the one-of-a-kind story here!

In 2014, the 9-year-old boy Willie Myrick was kidnapped at his hometown in Atlanta state, America. According to reports, the kidnapper used cash to approach the boy. Then, he grabbed him to his car and drove away.

Willie even made it to the TV news after the risky incident

In three hours sitting in the car of the man, Willie could not stop mumbling the song Every Praise. The lyrics just repeatedly proclaim praise to God. It goes,

"Every praise is to our God

Every word of worship with one accord.

Every praise, every praise is to our God.

Sing hallelujah to our God.

Every praise, every praise is to our God."

The unusual outcome

For nearly 3 hours during the ride, he repeatedly crooned the song maybe with the intention to ask for the help of God. In spite of the threat he had to face, he still kept on singing.

The constant voice of Myrick made the criminal triggered and anxious. As the abductor reached his own limits, he opened the car door and threw the boy at a place near East Point, Atlanta’s suburbs.

Willie Myrick shared he was afraid that the abductor was going to murder him. Willie said,

“He was cursing at me telling me to shut up and didn't want to hear a word from me. He said if I told anyone he would hurt me, like in a bad way.”

After that, he went to a number of homes in that neighborhood to ask for help. A person turned the boy away. However, an elderly man actually let him in and then called his godmother and the police.

The story went crazy viral

The song that Myrick kept singing is a track by Grammy winner Hezekiah Walker. After learning about the abduction, the singer shared that he went on a flight from New York to Atlanta to meet Willie Myrick.

He met the boy and his family on Myrick’s 10th birthday. Everyone sang Every Praise together out loud as the song actually saved his life.

After the incident, the Atlanta government issued a warning about the possible risk to children in the hometown to raise people’s awareness.

Interestingly, Willie Myrick was born to atheists parents. But that did not stop him from believing in God as he lived with his religious godmother. He said that God is his best friend, maybe that is why he was saved.

Here is the gospel song that saved the life of the little boy:

The competent forces quickly offered a reward of $10,000 to the arrestee of the suspect who caused the abduction. The suspect was defined to be in the middle or late 20' of age.
