In this time of darkness, in this time of uncertainty, in this time of despair, in this time of questioning beliefs, values and honor, what more can help that an inspiring expression of music and spirituality?
Music is my balm, my protection and my soothing comfort.
It’s one of the world’s most beautiful songs that has been covered by hundreds singers over the years. This may be one of the most inspiring rendition of ‘You Raise Me Up’ to date.
More than 200 children have joined American vocal artist Peter Hollens for a haunting performance of the classic song. While everyone from Westlife to Josh Groban and Human Nature has covered the iconic track in the past, Hollens and the children have delivered an a cappella version of it.
A cappella is a genre of music that isn’t accompanied with instruments. In the clip, Hollens and the children use their voices to replicate the sounds the instruments would usually make.
It’s resulted in something that is truly magical.
Using some cinema magic, the clip begins with five versions of Hollens appearing on screen, demonstrating how he uses his voice to mimic the sound of instruments.
By the end of the first chorus, he’s then singing in a theatre with the 200 children who all show off their incredible voices. As the song progresses, Hollens’ vocals blend perfectly with those of the students, building up to the epic conclusion.
The children are part of a number of A cappella groups in the Oregon area including Soundcheck, Echo, InTune, Counterpoint, Microphonics, Aca-Word and The Green Note.
