Scotty McCreery visited his old elementary school and joined in on a song with their children’s choir.
“It’s just cool to come back and see the old stomping grounds, and it’s fun to see the smiles on kids’ faces when they get surprised,” McCreery said. “So I’m glad I’m in a position to give back.”
Many of the children in the choir couldn’t contain their excitement over their surprise singing partner. Student Salena Price burst into tears when she saw McCreery walk through the door. “He came here. He sings nice. And he touched my hand three times,” Price said. “He’s my favorite singer.”
McCreery’s appearance was also kept a secret from the children’s parents in order to make the night even more unforgettable.
“It was special,” McCreery said. “That’s what you want for them. To be happy, and they are young and having fun. It would have a big night regardless of if I was here, but I hope I made their night a little better.”
