Student Choir Gives Flight Captain A Beautiful Send-Off With Impromptu Performance

A student choir surprised a captain on his last flight with a sweet impromptu serenade.

Ronald Smith was an airline pilot with United Airlines for 32 years, and today as he is on his last flight from Chicago to Brussels as a pilot as he is all set to retire.

So when student choir of the LGE (Lycée des Garçons d’Esch-sur-Alzette) heard about his retirement, they honored him in the best possible way they knew.

After other passengers got off the plane, the choir remained behind and waited for Ronald to come out of the pit, they then stood in a semi-circle and sang ‘Viva La Vida’ from Coldplay.

The teens gave the tune a makeover as they performed an a cappella serenade, the captain must have enjoyed the moment as the crew gathered around him.

This must have been a truly heartwarming moment for Captain Ronald and we wish him all the best in his next endeavor.
