Baylor University Men's Choir Sings Da Coconut Nut by Filipino Composer Ryan Cayabyab

The Baylor University Men's Choir flying on Emirates Airlines gave an impromptu performance of "Da Coconut Nut" composed by Filipino musician Ryan Cayabyab on their flight home from Kenya.

Singing and dancing, the 75-member of the Baylor University Men's Choir performed Ryan Cayabyab's song "Da Coconut Nut" to the delight of the passengers and crew.

"Da Coconut Nut" was popularized by Ryan Cayabyab's group Smokey Mountain back in the 1990's. The choral arrangement of the song has become popular and performed by choirs around the world. The video posted by Emirates on Facebook has been viewed over 2.5 million times.

It's a really great performance and I checked out their actual performance of "Da Coconut Nut" on Youtube. It's not very clear but it's great nonetheless.

If you're curious, here is the original version of the song "Da Coconut Nut" by Smokey Mountain

Amazing Act Of Sportsmanship

Mitchell Marcus is manager of his school’s basketball team, the Coronado High School Thunderbirds. Due to a developmental disability he’s never been able to take part in a game. However, for the last game of the season, his coach Pete Morales told him to suit up. He didn’t expect to actually play, but just wearing the jersey with his teammates was a thrill in itself.

Mitchell didn't know but coach Morales was going to put him in the game at the end of the fourth quarter, regardless of the score. With just over a minute left, Mitchell was put onto the court for the first time, and set up shop near the net. His teammates passed him the ball a number of times, but he was never able to make a basket. During his last attempt, the ball went out of bounds. With just seconds left in the game, it looked like he wouldn’t get another chance.

Then, one of the finest acts of sportsmanship you’ll ever see occurred.
