“This was a spur of the moment decision to go.. Students were in the middle of class. Some taking quizzes and tests, and dropped everything for a bigger lesson on life, love, community and compassion.”


The video was shared by Musician Tim McGraw on social media and it instantly went viral and got 23 million+ views in just a couple of days.

He also added, “a friend sent this to me today. Ben Ellis is a Nashville area high school teacher battling cancer. The entire student body (400+ students plus HS faculty) drove to his house to worship with him. Our thoughts and Prayers are with him and his family….. So precious and kind.”


Since 2008, Ben Ellis has been teaching Latin at Christ Presbyterian Academy in Nashville. For the last year, he’s been battling an aggressive form of cancer.

After hearing that their teacher was having a tough time with his cancer treatment, the staff and students from the school decided to surprise their much-loved teacher and gather outside his house to show him what he meant to them all.
