This angelic arrangement of a Disney classic, “God Help the Outcasts” is a powerful hymn with a compassionate meaning. As heavenly light pours from the stained glass windows, Peter belts effortlessly, bringing home the idea of showing empathy to all. Intimate and simple, this music video is a beautiful take on the famous Disney song.
Evynne never fails to deliver powerful emotions in every performance she gives. Her performance provides a haunting but strong interpretation of “Poor Wayfaring Stranger,” as she walks slowly in the field, with unsaturated colors. Listen to her croon as a bluesy harmonica ties the whole performance together.
Simple, stunning, and serene are the first three words that come to mind when watching this video. Filmed in rural Oregon, in an empty church, The Hound + The Fox capture the feeling of peace as they sing softly over gentle guitar. Sticking to the original hymn instead of the more recognizable adapted version you hear today, their creative decision leaves you with a feeling of peace as you watch this video!
With beautiful landscapes behind them, the O’Neill sisters harmonize effortlessly on this famous Josh Groban original. The three sisters have been singing together for fifteen years; a feat easily distinguished by their talent and how well they sing together. As they sing about being raised up to stand on mountains, they’re literally standing on a gorgeous mountain with the world behind them; enjoy this angelic trio!
Recognizable within seconds, GENTRI actually filmed this classic Irish folk song in Ireland! With rolling hills and gorgeous mountains behind them, the trio captures the essence of “Danny Boy.” GENTRI's cover provides an emotional tribute to the beautiful land and the significance of keeping great folk tunes like these alive, while recognizing the important sacrifice that Irish men made to protect their country.
An incredibly powerful and poignant song, “Go Rest High On That Mountain,” portrays the story of fallen soldiers and the sacrifice they’ve made. As the music video provides a visual telling of a soldier losing his brother to WWII, Home Free brings forth bittersweet depth with their tight harmonies and sentimental melodies. With Independence Day nearing, this video serves as a strong reminder of the men and women who have laid down their lives for our country.
Vocal Point and David Archuleta deliver an uplifting rendition of “What a Beautiful Name.” David’s gorgeous tenor and Yaphet Busto’s stunning solo drive home the feeling of praise as the rest of the Vocal Point boys harmonize effortlessly. As stars and clouds fill the skies, the video showcases just how talented these boys really are, and I hope you feel transported to a heavenly state of mind.
I love a cappella, it’s always been such a big part of my life. I co-founded the group On the Rocks at the University of Oregon, I met my wife through a cappella, and what really put me on the map as a creator was my arrangements and transforming popular songs into a cappella renditions! I wanted to explain kind of why we focus so much on a cappella here at Legendary Vocals and why it’s so important to me and how amazing a cappella truly is.
