A Kidnapped Boy Sang Gospel Songs Until The Abductor Set Him FREE

Faith, Lifestyle

This young boy was kidnapped from his front yard, but his response has us all in shock.

Willie Myrick is a 10-year-old boy whose life is now changed forever. The young boy was kidnapped from his front yard in Atlanta, Georgia and just a couple of hours later the kidnapper kicked him out.

The amazing part about this story is that this young boy had a HUGE faith and that is what ultimately set him free from the man who kidnapped him. After realizing that he was being kidnapped, the boy started to sing out a gospel song that he knew, and even after being told to “shut up”.


In an interview with CBN he shared about the experience of being kidnapped – it made me cringe. He said that the abductor kept cursing and him and covered his mouth when he tried to yell for help.

“Some guy came up in a silver or grey Honda Accord, I was thinking that he was going to hurt me bad, real bad.”

After he got put in the backseat of the car the young boy started to sing the song “Every Praise” by Grammy Award winner Hezekiah Walker. After singing the song for 3 HOURS straight, the kidnapper was annoyed and made the young boy get out of his car immediately.

“I could sing the whole thing by heart…If you praise the Lord he will help you in mysterious ways.”


After getting out of the car Willie ran to the nearest home, and was able to get picked up and taken home.

This little boy is a ball of faith, not just when he’s in bad situations. Willie likes to spend his free time studying scripture. He was asked to share his favorite scripture and his response captured all of our hearts.

“Well I love all of them but one is Psalms, Psalms 23 – The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want…I always think that God is with me everywhere I go. Like, when I’m in bed he has a chair, he just watches and when I’m in the car he’s just on the other side.”


He was definitely watching over this young boy! His godmother started taking Willie to church when he was just a toddler, and now it has all paid off. His faith liberated him from one of the scariest life situations.

This is truly inspiring, Willie’s faith is now touching lives all over the country! Watch him sing in the video below:

“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
Glory hallelujah is due our God
Every praise every praise is to our God

God my Savior
God my Healer
God my Deliverer
Yes He is, yes He is

Yes He is, yes He is [repeat]

Every praise is to our God.
Every word of worship with one accord

Every praise every praise [repeat]
Is to our God.”

This is incredible! Way to go Willie!
