The choir performed gospel legend John P. Kee’s “My Mind Is Made Up,” to an overwhelming response from both the crowd and Roberts herself, who decided to post the video on her Facebook page, generating over 1 million organic views in 5 days. To date, reaching 1.4+ million views, the viral video is the most watched video ever posted by Roberts on any of her social media platforms.

“#AfterGMA This is all the #MondayMotivation you’ll need! We were fortunate to have the Francis Marion University YGB choir in our audience this morn…after Good Morning America they took us all to church!,” states Robin Roberts.
