#SiloSingingMom Goes Viral

DEKALB COUNTY, Ala. — Over the past two weeks, life has drastically changed for Ider’s very own Jenny Wootten Mann. After posting a video of her singing inside a grain silo, this DeKalb County mom of three and substitute bus driver has gone viral across Facebook, YouTube, and even nabbed a mention on the biggest cable news network in America.

Mann, our very own Ider sports reporter, posted a video of her singing God Bless America and How Great Thou Art three weeks ago, she assumed that her only audience would be her ever-growing list of friends on Facebook. 2.4 millions views later, the #SiloSingingMom is blowing up on the Internet.

Mann stopped by to speak with us on Torch Talk this week where co-host Marla Jones insisted that Mann’s rise to fame began when she guest co-hosted the show during the summer.

“It just boosted it right off,” joked Mann, who co-hosted at the same time as Imogene Green before June’s Rainsville Freedom Run.

“I posted {the video} thinking that it would get some attention around home,” said Mann. “But nothing like this.”

Mann is an avid singer in DeKalb County and in her church, where she grew up singing. After a surprise seeing her video on Sunday’s edition of Fox & Friends, Mann is now expected to return to the show for an interview via satellite. Due to the Supreme Court hearings, the interview has been temporarily postponed, but Southern Torch will update you on when she is set to make her nationwide debut on the small screen!
