10 Men Begin Singing This Classic Song, Gives The Entire Crowd Goosebumps
May 30, 2018 by apost team
A cappella groups can always be entertaining, but it seems that this group, Brigham Young University (BYU)'s Vocal Point a cappella made what is possibly the most beautiful vocal rendition of "Nearer, My God, to Thee" that we've ever heard.
Since being recorded, this video has spread like wildfire on the internet, racking up over 17 million views since it was posted in 2014.
If the 10 men singing a cappella isn't enough for you, you'll be even more surprised when the entire BYU Men's Chorus comes in for a bombastic arrangement that you'll have trouble forgetting.
These voices are chilling, taking up the entire space in the hall that they're singing in. What's even more incredible about this video is that the arrangement is absolutely pristine—to arrange for 10 voices with proper voice leading and engaging harmonies is one thing, but to have that combine well with an entire choir? That's almost unheard of, which is what makes this arrangement that much more impressive.
The video itself also benefits from some beautiful videography and lighting, which lets you perfectly be immersed in the experience and truly take in everything about this stunning performance.
This performance is incredible, but also no surprise when you consider the level of musical quality in BYU's music program. There are so many talented musicians there that it only makes sense that something so incredible would come out of these individuals. Vocal Point is also nothing to joke about, having an entire YouTube presence and fanbase dedicated to their astounding performances, with each one being better than the last.
Watch the video and become immersed in this beautiful song of praise!
