By Jay Dillon
An Atlanta boy says a gospel song saved him from a kidnapper after he was snatched and thrown into a car. 10-year-old Willie Myrick told FOX News he was in his front yard in Atlanta, Georgia. He said he bent over to pick up money when somebody grabbed him and threw him in a car. The man had strict instructions for the boy."He told me he didn't want to hear a word from me," Myrick said.Myrick didn't say anything but he did start singing the gospel song "Every Praise." The kidnapper started cursing and told him to shut up, but he refused. Myrick said he sang the song for about three hours until the kidnapper let him out of the car.The little boy ran to a nearby home and asked the resident to call his guardian.Police don't have any leads on the suspect, but are hoping a sketch they released will generate tips.
