A 9-year-old boy might have saved his own life by singing a gospel song.

Willie Myrick was kidnapped from his Atlanta driveway earlier this month by an unknown man. According to police, the kidnapper dropped him off unharmed after driving him around for hours.

Myrick says he continued to sing the gospel song "Every Praise" by Hezekiah Walker until the kidnapper grew tired of cursing and telling him to shut up. He eventually threw Myrick out of the vehicle.

Inspired by the boy's story, Grammy Award-winning artist Walker visited Myrick at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church last week.
