Student choir performs at San Francisco church after surviving fiery crash

Bay Area

An Alabama choir who survived a fiery crash crash on Highway 101 performed in San Francisco on Sunday. 

Several members of the Oakwood University Group were injured in Saturday’s early morning crash in San Mateo County. 

All members of the choir managed to escape before their tour bus burst into flames on the highway. 

The choir, known as “The Aeolians,” filled Third Baptist Church with their angelic voices and serenaded the crowd. 

Reverend Amos Brown said it was a miracle that they were all able to get off the bus with just minor injuries. 

“They were able to get off of that bus before it went up in an inferno,” Brown said. 

He said he was grateful the choir carried on with their plans to perform Sunday despite the tragic accident. 

“The Aeolians have always shown that they could perform under great difficulty,” Brown said. 

The audience was thrilled with the group’s performance and gave several standing ovations.
