Since flash mobs first started appearing in 2003, a result of people’s interconnectivity via the net, cell phones and other handheld electronic devices, they became a spontaneous phenomenon. They have never been seen before in human history. They now orchestrate public happenings. They prove that there is still space in our jaded globalized sensibilities for surprise, often with a message.
Previously, I put THIS up as my Flash mob YouTube of the Year. I chose this because the Flash mobs’ rendition of Handel’s Messiah (also commonly known as the Hallelujah Choras) brought back memories of 1955.
Father Patrick Peyton staged massive Rosary rallies in key cities of the world and extensively utilized mass communication to promote his ministry of binding families through prayer under the Family Rosary. Father Peyton made famous the slogans, "The family that prays together stays together," and "A world at prayer is a world at peace."
Father Patrick Peyton in his worldwide Crusade of the Rosary Rally came into Penang. I was amongst 25 Penang sopranos selected to perform this oratorio at the rally, if memory does not fail, at the Dato Keramat padang.
My other reason for selecting this flash mob was because the Christian community was anxiously awaiting the outcome of a court case that would decide if Christians could use ALLAH in their publications.
This is my choice this year per kindness of my dear friend Vanitha:
I must admit that I reach for the tissues every time I hear Christmas Carols around this time.
HAVE A BLESSED AND MEANINGFUL CHRISTMAS
AND A PEACEFUL 2012.
