UPDATE, 2:53PM: We have video! Find it after the jump.
You know that saying about how everything takes a little bit longer to reach the Midwest? Well, after the flash-mob trend has taken over train stations and public spaces across the world, it's finally made it to Kansas City. According to the Star, at least 450 people -- organized by word-of-mouth and e-mail -- erupted among unsuspecting shoppers in Handel's "The Hallelujah Chorus" at Crown Center yesterday. (They called it a "Random Act of Choral Music.") It was supposed to be a secret, but by 1:30PM, Crown Center's central atrium, food court, and upper two levels were jammed with singers holding choral music, cell phones and digital cameras.
UPDATE: Check out the video over at the Plog.
