For years, Mariana Walker was a choir teacher at Alvin Junior High School. As Walker’s condition continued to worsen, the teacher ultimately had to leave school. Later, she was moved to hospice care at her home as her battle with cancer progressed.

In the video, the Texas students decided to surprise their beloved teacher by serenading her with a song outside her door — a means of showing her how much she meant to them.

“Her family opened the doors so she could hear them sing,” videographer Cindi Lee Cooper-Fields said. “It was one of the most beautiful gestures I have ever seen. Friends from all ages got together and sang like angels in hopes of her feeling our love and respect.”

The students chose Hillsong’s “Oceans.” A song whose lyrics clearly spoke to how the teenagers were feeling in that moment.

“You call me out upon the waters

The great unknown where feet may fail

And there I find You in the mystery

In oceans deep

My faith will stand,” they sang to her.

After finishing their serenade, the students said a prayer for Walker. Minutes later, the beloved teacher passed away.

“The family walked back in the house and, within a few minutes, she took her last breath,” said Cooper-Fields.

The love and respect Walker gave her students is apparent because they had nothing but praise for her. “She would take the shirt off her back for you at any time,” said Denim Fields, one of Walker’s students.

“She was a very special teacher to us,” said Holly Darnell.
