What is the best way to drown the growling of a tornado outside and uplift the spirits at the same time? By singing a chorus of Mary Did You Know!

As deadly storms were predicted to enter Georgia, all the schools were ordered to go under complete lockdown till the area was out of danger.

Bremen High School braves the storm.
Students of Bremen High School, Georgia, were forced to stay inside the school till the violent storms passed on Wednesday. But instead of giving into the fear of blaring storm sirens, they decided to hold on to their faith.
Music came to their aid during a time when it would have been easy to get scared of the approaching natural calamity. Sitting in their school corridor, some of the students chimed in to the song Mary Did You Know.
Soon others joined in, with a few even adding overtones or rapping interludes. The result was one of the most beautiful renditions of the song ever sung.
The song couldn’t be more apt for their situation. If Mary’s son could do it, why couldn’t they!
As soon as it was posted on Facebook, it quickly went viral and has been shared over 2,500 times, reports 11 Alive. Jessica Pruitt Labbe, who uploaded it, and is a student of Bremen High School captioned it:
“Who is afraid during a tornado watch/warning at BHS…not me because I’m reassured and reminded today that Mary’s baby boy has got this!”
