(NEWSER) – After Willie Myrick, then 9, was taken from his home in Atlanta, the kidnapper drove for several hours, police say—and all the while, Willie sang. The song was "Every Praise," a gospel tune recorded by Hezekiah Walker. "He was cursing at me, telling me to shut up, and didn't want to hear a word from me," Willie tells WSB-TV. “He said if I told anyone, he would hurt me, like in a bad way."
