On the night of March 31, 2014, 9-year-old Willie Myrick was playing with his pet chihuahua outside his Atlanta home when he spotted a few dollars laying on the ground near a tree. As soon as he bent down to take the money, an unidentified man grabbed him and forced him into a four-door Honda Civic.

Willie Myrick and his abductor.

Three hours later, the predator threw Myrick out of the car in East Point, Georgia.

Why?

The boy literally annoyed his way out of captivity.

“He was cursing at me, telling me to shut up, and didn’t want to hear a word from me,” Myrick recalled. “He said if I told anyone he would hurt me, like, in a bad way.”

The boy ignored captor’s requests and started singing the gospel song “Every Praise” until the kidnapper just couldn’t take it anymore.

“He opened the door and threw me out,” the boy said. “He told me not to tell anyone.”

Stranded miles from his home, Myrick went door-to-door seeking help. After one person turned him away, an elderly man across the street called the police and contacted the boy’s guardian.

Touched by Myrick’s story, Hezekiah Walker, the songwriter behind “Every Praise,” flew to Atlanta to meet the young man. Walker said that he believes God spoke through him to “save that boy’s life.” He also invited Myrick to join him on stage for a special song.
