A Traditional Maori War Dance Was A Great Wedding Surprise

This awesome wedding surprise has gone viral and we had to share it with you! The wedding guests at this wedding performed a haka, a traditional Maori war dance, at the reception of Aaliyah and Benjamin Armstrong. It is such a great video as you see the bride being moved to tears and the dance inspires the couple to join in!

This wedding surprise took place after the best man’s speech. Here is what Aaliyah told CNN about the performance: “We knew that they’d organized a haka, but not that scale. And with my best friend jumping in as well, it turned out to be a bit of a surprise. I love my Maori side but this time (watching a haka) was different, knowing they were doing it for me and my husband. It was a blessing to be part of it.”

In the first 24 hours that this video was posted online, it was viewed more than 19 million times! Pretty amazing and you have to see for yourself!
