Singers and Bloggers Shout “Hallelujah!”
Can we get a “Hallelujah?” Better yet, can we get a few thousand? We are looking for singers of all skill levels to join the world’s largest “Hallelujah” chorus, and that means you, your friends, your grandparents, or your choir. YouTube star Peter Hollens and his wife, Evynne, have teamed up with us to record videos for four individual singing parts (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). Submitted videos will then be used to make a grand virtual choir of epic proportions.
You can access the sheet music and a sing-along video to help guide you through the process of making your own video at virtualchoir.mormon.org. When George Frideric Handel finished composing “Hallelujah” he was quoted as saying, "I did think I did see all Heaven before me, and the great God Himself." We hope you’ll add your God-given voices to his masterpiece. The deadline for entry is March 1, 2016.
From the Blogosphere
Bloggers far and wide are singing the praises of this rare chance to sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Here’s what the blogging world is saying about the virtual “Hallelujah” chorus:
Can a “5 out of 10” sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir?
“I’m about as average as they get when it comes to singing! I’d say I’m a solid 5 out of 10 if I were to place my talent on a rating scale. But my brave self (the one that doesn’t get out that often) told my regular self, ‘Self! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! Go for it!’”
Want to Sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Srsly.
"Let me guess. You were in choir in high school but since then you haven't really had time or opportunity to sing, except in your car or shower. But every now and then you'll hear a Christmas song or something and automatically know the harmony because of your experience back then, and you remember it wasn't horrible to learn a part and sing in a choir, right?"
