400 Students Gather To Sing Outside Cancer-Stricken Teacher’s House [Video]

This will bring a tear to your eye.

This will certainly bring a tear to your eye. Four hundred students in Nashville recently gathered outside their cancer-stricken teacher’s house and sang to him.

Students and faculty from Christ Presbyterian Academy wanted to show their gratitude to their beloved Latin teacher, Ben Ellis, so the entire school (400+ students and staff) went over to his house to worship with him.

Musician Tim McGraw first shared this video, which was captured by his friend, on Facebook.

McGraw wrote:

A friend sent this to me today. Ben Ellis is a Nashville area high school teacher battling cancer.

The entire student body (400+ students plus HS faculty) drove to his house to worship with him. Our thoughts and Prayers are with him and his family….. So precious and kind.

What an amazing and kind gesture. Thanks to these students and faculty for being such an inspiration.
