Gospel Song Saves Abducted Boy’s Life

ATLANTA (April 23, 2014) Community leaders are praising a 9-year-old Atlanta boy who was abducted from the driveway of his home for his calm, as he sang the gospel song "Every Praise" until the man released him.

Grammy Award-winning gospel singer Hezekiah Walker, who performed the song, even traveled to Atlanta to meet the boy.

Walker says he believes God spoke through him to save the boy's life.

The boy, Willie Myrick, recounted the story at a recent gathering in his honor.

He says as he sang, the man who abducted him drove around and cursed before eventually letting him go unharmed last month.

Police have a sketch of the kidnapper and are searching for him.

Further details about what the boy told police about what happened on March 31 weren't available.
