Southwest Employee Sings Touching Tribute to Grieving Mom

People often have incredible experiences on Southwest flights. From attendants who crack jokes, to rapping pilots, and even in-flight weddings! This experience, however, was more somber and extremely touching.

When Southwest Airlines gate agent Scott Wirt learned that the mom of a slain Arizona State Trooper was on the plane at his gate, he decided to come on board to honor her in his own way. The passenger’s son, 24-year-old Tyler Edenhofer, was killed in the line of duty just two months after graduating from the police academy. Wirt was recorded singing "You Raise Me Up" for the special passenger sitting in the front row of the plane.

There wasn't a dry eye in the house for this touching tribute, and it was definitely a flight no one will soon forget.
