Derek Klingenberg might be a farmer but he is certainly not your average farmer. When his new grain bin was completed, he knew that he would need to ring in the occasion in a special way. Of course, this would definitely take some thought and dedication. There was only one chance to throw the proper housewarming party for the grain bin and Derek was determined to make it unforgettable.
The idea of a farmer being a patron of the arts could seem silly to some. Derek is a unique soul, though. The idea that he came up with will have you wondering why no one else ever managed to think of it in the past. The Internet was stunned to find out what idea he eventually came up and we are sure that you are going to have a hard time wrapping your mind around it, too.
A grain bin is not typically considered to be the classiest location but Derek is changing this perception for good. In order to show the world his new creation, he decided to bring the Bethel College Choir. This decision was even more special to Derek because his mother just so happens to be an alum. He made sure she was in the building for this performance.
We are glad that he put this together because it is one of the most incredible things that we have ever seen. Not only did Derek invite his mother to the performance but he was also sure to bring along his trusty trombone. Once the choir was finally gathered, they provided one of the most stirring performances that you are ever going to see.
The song that they chose to perform was a beautiful one. Their performance of “Down To The River To Pray” is one for the ages. Any lover of music can certainly appreciate the time and effort that was put into this performance. The acoustics that a grain bin provides add a little something extra to the proceedings. The way that the sound reverberates is just marvelous.
Once you have seen this clip for yourself, you will definitely want to pass it along to your friends and loved ones. This is the sort of performance that simply has to be seen by as wide of an audience as possible. Please do not hesitate to share this awesome story today.
