Teachers play an important role in a person’s upbringing. Some teachers end up becoming more than just a teacher, they change lives. High School choir teacher Gabrielyn Watson is one of them.
For the students in a Chicago high school, she was an inspiration. This choir teacher supported and loved her students and ultimately helped most of them to make a career out of music. So as a way of saying thanks, her former students decided to give her a beautiful surprise.
One of her students says that she is one of the best vocal teachers he has ever met. He also thinks he never would have been able to reach where he is now if it hadn’t been for Ms. Watson. She had recently taken seven months off to successfully fight multiple myeloma, a cancer found in white blood cells. She thought she was arriving at the Chicago school for teacher interviews but some of her former students were secretly waiting to greet her.
Ms. Watson, who has been teaching at the school for the last 17 years, couldn’t contain her emotions upon hearing their rendition of “Amazing Grace.” the students just wanted her to know that they love her. Wait till you see what they did! Watch the full video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
