Boy Sings His Way Out Of Abduction

We've heard about singing for your supper, but singing for your freedom? When a 10-year-old Atlanta boy was kidnapped from his front yard and thrown into a car, the odds were stacked against him. 

According to an article in Fox News, as the abductor drove around, young Willie Myrick did the only thing he could think of—he sang his heart out. 
The kidnapper, who clearly wasn't a fan of gospel, cussed and shouted at Willie to shut up. But he just carried on singing a little ditty called "Every Praise."
Never mind Judo practice. Willie played to his strengths.
He kept on singing the song—for about three hours—until his captor finally snapped and let him go. He then ran to a nearby home and got help. 
Following his release, the kid not only got to meet the singer, Hezekiah Walker, they performed a duet . . . of "Every Praise"what else? 

I have a feeling, though grateful, even Willie is probably a bit sick of the song by now.
An emotional rescue made an unlikely hero of this man.
