Shoppers at the Promenade Mall in Temecula got a pleasant surprise Saturday afternoon when members of a Menifee church group sprang up out of nowhere to sing Christmas songs in a flash mob performance.
After performing in the middle of the food court, the flash mob showed up again outside the mall by the giant Christmas tree, and again later in front of JC Penney.
Church members organized the flash mob after seeing video of a similar performance on YouTube. Kevin Ruffner showed the video to Bigelow, who organized the event with the help of Musical Director Jackie Blood. The group rehearsed the event in advance before "taking the show on the road."
