Ever been on a flight and secretly wished- “If only the in-flight entertainment included Christian songs”? Well, now your prayers have been answered. A video is going viral online after Christian singers broke out into gospel songs 30,000 feet in the sky. Although, not all the passengers seemed impressed. Captured in the video is one man looking super uncomfortable by the whole ordeal. Either that, or his plane meal was beginning to induce some severe diarrhea.

According to Daily Dot, the Christian pastor leading the performance is the founder of the Kingdom Realm Ministries based in the US. Unfortunately, him and his choir may need a little more practice though, because the whole impromptu performance seemed quite underwhelming. So underwhelming in fact, that a cacophony of a hundred crying babies seems much more appealing.
However, the performance quality wasn’t the reason for the heavy online blowback. After the video was posted online, people chimed in with their disapproval of the musical incident. Many users online were unimpressed that religion was being forced upon the plane passengers.
One user on TikTok wrote, “I’m a Christian and I don’t believe in enforcing this on anyone, pray in private in your own time.” While another user Tweeted, “Nope. I’d be pulling the exit door open.”
While most of the reactions online were negative, some people supported the performance, with one Twitter user writing, “I have mega respect for the people playing and singing. Preach the gospel to the world.” No word yet if this comment was posted by the pastor himself.
There’s only one time people should be allowed to sing on an airplane and it’s when all the toilets are miraculously vacant. Until then, let’s all stay in our seats, keep quiet, and binge-watch Big Bang Theory on our tiny little airplane screens.
