HOUSTON, Texas – It was a beautiful moment captured on video inside a plane in Houston.

Earlier this month, a plane landed in Houston and the pilot had a special message for passengers.

He told passengers that an Army private was escorting the remains of a World War II soldier back to Houston, adding that he would be exiting the plane first.

At that point, a choir of young people began to sing the “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”

Diane Hollifield Cupp, who posted the video, said the choir had been on tour in Europe and was returning to the United States from Germany.
