CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Some high school choir students that gave a special performance for some veterans at a Cape Girardeau McDonald's Friday morning were back on Saturday to do it again.

The Cape Central High School choir sang the national anthem at the kickoff for the 2015 MSHSAA State Girls Volleyball Championships at the Show Me Center.

One their way back, they stopped at the McDonald's on Broadway for some breakfast.

A group of men regularly meet for coffee at the McDonald's. They started talking with the high schoolers about their field trip. 

Rev. David Dissen asked if the group would perform the anthem for them.

After getting permission from restaurant management, the choir performed the national anthem for the folks enjoying breakfast who rose to their feet with hands over their hearts for the song.

On Saturday morning, the group came back again, and was asked to sing the national anthem a second time.

One of the men says the impromptu performance on Friday is something he'll remember for the rest of his life.
