I was in the mall near where I live and walked past the entrance to Macy’s. I thought I heard a couple of voices singing and peered into the store. I saw a group of people standing around, apparently listening to the singing. Intrigued, I entered the store, only to soon discover that many of those I thought were watching had started singing too. It was a flash mob I had wandered into!
It was absolutely unexpected and totally delightful. I wish I would have had the presence of mind to pull out my phone and take some pictures or capture the sounds. But I was so enthralled and captivated that all I could do was stand there and enjoy the experience.
At the end of the ‘performance’, someone raised a sign that said ‘You’ve just experienced a Random Act of Culture.” How wonderful!!!
Here’s a link to a flash mob that happened last year. It’s pretty awesome!!
