LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Choir members with Saint Peter Claver Church surprised Choir Director Leny Thomas with a special blessing sing-along outside of the rehabilitation hospital where Thomas is currently recovering after a car accident last month.

Lexington police say Thomas was driving his car on July 22nd, when he crashed into a light pole on mercer road, causing a gas line to rupture.
Police say he was entrapped in his car and had suffered serious injuries
Father Norman Fischer with Saint Peter Claver Church says Leny has lost his left hand up to his elbow, has swelling in his brain and rib damage.
His recovery will be a long one…so choir members wanted to lift up his spirits with song.

“Today is a day he has been able to improve so much so. He’s looking forward to being discharged soon, but we wanted to be able to get his spirit up and remind him that we have so much to look forward to together. So we’ve come as a choir to sing praises, sing songs and hymns and lift his soul up. His spirits are in a good place, he said I thought the lord was going to take me but I guess he has more work for me to do” said Father Norman Fischer.

It is unknown why or how Thomas crashed that night.
