You Won't Believe the Song the 9-year Old Sang That Made His Abductor Release His Terrified Kidnap Victim

Teresa Neumann : Apr 22, 2014  Blayne Alexander – WXIA

"I really believe that God spoke through me to save that young man's life." -"Every Praise" writer Hezekiah Walker

Willie Myrick(Atlanta, GA)—Earlier this month, 9-year-old Willie Myrick went missing for three hours after a stranger—who is still on the loose—abducted him from the front yard of his home. Numerous sources say the young boy was so terrified, but he was able to quell his fear by singing the Gospel song "Every Praise" by Hezekiah Walker out loud. (Photo via

According to Willie—who was eventually let go unharmed—his kidnapper yelled and cursed at him to stop singing, and eventually got so sick of it, he opened the car door and threw Willie out.

"He told me not to tell anyone," said Willie.

Hezekiah Walker, who wrote the song Willie sang over-and-over during his abduction, had flown from New York to Atlanta to be a part of the celebration. (Photo via

"It's just emotional to me because you never know who you're going to touch," Walker told 11Alive News. "I just wanted to hug him and tell him I love him."

According to a WFMY news report, Walker entered Mt. Carmel Baptist Church to a standing ovation and hugged Willie tightly as tears "streamed down the boy's face," before leading out in the song that saved Willie's life.

"I really believe that God spoke through me to save that young man's life," said Walker.
