Teen Sings Song to Lava While Evacuating Hawaii Home

Lava from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano has destroyed more than 150 homes and forced thousands of residents to evacuate from the Big Island’s Puna District.

Among them is 18-year old Kumsa Maphalala, who stopped beside the lava to sing a song she had written after learning her childhood home was in danger.

The song is about letting go and she says she felt safe singing it, even as the lava inched closer and closer.
