Choir breaks out in song on plane in show of respect for fallen Houston soldier

ATLANTA, GA -- It was an amazing show of respect for a Houston soldier who made the ultimate sacrifice, and it was captured on video.

The video above was posted to Facebook by Diane Cupp, who was on a flight from Germany to Atlanta. When they landed, she says the pilot announced that a soldier on board would exit the plane first. That soldier was escorting the remains of a World War II soldier back home to Houston.

As that soldier got up to leave, Diane says a group of young people began to sing "The Battle Hymn of the Republic."
