Talking to the IndianExpress.com, violinist Dennis George said he and his sister Donnah had volunteered to help the students at their mother’s school. He said they didn’t anticipate the video would go viral. “Hell No! My mother just uploaded it online just randomly,” said the musician.
Dennis said he was touched by Reynolds and the band acknowledging their video. “It feels sooo good. My sister was the conductor, I played the violin and Arun Paul was on keyboard and we all pitched in to train the students for almost three months. It feels amazing to get appreciation after so much of hard work went into it,” he said.
On social media, people praised the girls in the choir as well as the musicians and conductor helping them to ace the viral hit.
