Meet Jenny Wootten Mann. Jenny is a substitute bus driver, wife, and mother of three. She is a lady with a great voice and a great personality to match. She loves to sing just for fun, and most of all, she loves to sing her favorite hymns and patriotic songs.
She was scouting the area close to her home for an empty silo to sing in because who hasn’t been tempted to at least peek their heads in and test out the acoustics. Anyone would be tempted to shout out “Echo” just for the reverberatory fun. You know you’d be tempted, too.
She stepped inside a massive empty grain silo not far from her home, and she noticed how beautiful her voice reverberated around the metal walls.
Propping up her camera and moving to the center of the silo, Jenny starts to sing the moving hymn “How Great Thou Art.” To say that her voice is beautiful is an understatement! She’s got a talent that’s plain as day and standing inside an echo chamber only enhanced her performance.
After finishing the hymn, Jenny then launched into “God Bless America,” which sounded equally stunning as her soothing soprano filled the atmosphere with the recognizable melody.
Later that day, Jenny shared the video to her Facebook page, tagging a buddy and modestly stating,” Don’t pay attention to me cause I hate to see myself sing, but I am grateful for the gift God had given me.”
The response was instantaneous. People from all over started sharing her video and commenting about what a raw talent she has.
“I posted the video for a friend of mine who enjoys the song but never anticipated anything like the response I have received,” Jenny said. Jenny said, “I’m always singing in places with good acoustics, so this was nothing out of the ordinary for me.”
Incredibly, this humble mom found herself going viral, and a few weeks later she took a spur-of-the-moment video and shared it on the internet, the clip has been viewed over 2.4 million times.
It just goes to show you that you never know what good things might come your way unless you put yourself out there. Life is short, so sing the song, eat the cake, and take the risk!
Jenny explained that she had no intention of becoming a viral singing-superstar, the thought had never crossed her mind, and now that she finds herself in the limelight, this humble mom has stayed true to her roots. Still, she’s delighted by all the praise she has received — and it’s much deserved, indeed.
