A Southwest Airline worker got word a mother on board was grieving her son. And in a heartwarming moment caught on camera, he honored her loss by singing a beautiful rendition of ‘You Raise Me Up’ over the intercom.
‘You Raise Me Up’ is easily one of the most iconic numbers of our generation.
Josh Groban helped make the powerful song popular by lending his operatic voice to it. But countless other artists have covered the song over the years, too.
"You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be"
Today, we're hearing the song in an entirely new way.

While on a Southwest flight, a mother was grieving the loss of her son, Tyler Edenhofer. Her son was a state trooper who died in the line of duty.
That's when this airline worker decided to comfort her in a very special way. He started to belt out the powerful words of ‘You Raise Me Up' over the loudspeaker for the entire flight to hear.
"When I am down, and, oh, my soul, so weary
When troubles come, and my heart burdened be
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me"
When this kind airline worker performed over the intercom, everyone on the flight paid attention. And one passenger, Sean Warren, started filming the touching moment.
Now, all the passengers could offer their love and support for this mother during her time of need. The world needs more people like this man. Don't you agree?
