A cappella sensation Peter Hollens enlists the help of 200 children to sing ‘You Raise Me Up.’
This powerful song is one of the most iconic numbers of our generation. It was made popular by opera voice Josh Groban, but countless artists have covered the song over the years.
“You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be”
Peter became a viral sensation after sharing his a cappella cover songs that he posted online.
Today, he’s taking on a power ballad with this rendition of ‘You Raise Me Up.’
“When I am down, and, oh, my soul, so weary
When troubles come, and my heart burdened be
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me”
There’s no doubt that Peter Hollens has an incredible voice. But when he combines his talent with a choir of 200 children, it’s truly a sound like no other.
Filmed at the Tower Theatre in Bend Oregon, you can feel the passion behind every single note. This song is beloved by so many for the inspirational lyrics and message of hope.
This truly comes across when you hear all of these amazing voices together as one. It’s not easy to perform a cappella, especially a difficult song like ‘You Raise Me Up’, but this ensemble pulled it off flawlessly. This is just what the world needs to hear right now.
