'Surprise Homecoming': Soldier Sings 'Hallelujah' During Emotional Reunion With His Kids (VIDEO)

A reunion at church on 'Surprise Homecoming'It's heartbreaking to see kids separated from their parents by military deployment. For 6-year-old Latavia and 8-year-old Lawrence, the experience was especially trying, since their dad, Sgt. Lawrence Lee, is a single parent. Monday on 'Surprise Homecoming' (Mondays, 10PM on TLC), the Lee family had an emotional reunion at church.

Sgt. Lee had been in Iraq on a yearlong deployment, and his kids obviously missed him dearly. On Monday's show, Sgt. Lee waited with a microphone outside the church doors, made his grand entrance singing 'Glory Glory, Hallelujah' (or 'Battle Hymn of the Republic').


The congregation clapped when they saw him enter wearing his camouflage fatigues, and Latavia smiled as little Lee cried after seeing his dad. SGT. Lee embraced his kids and stood before the congregation to share their reunion with everybody.
