Happy Spring! As we come out of this long winter, I wanted to put together a playlist that will warm your soul and introduce you to some of my absolute favorite artists. Check out my list below and keep reading to learn more about why I love each and every song! 

❤️❤️❤️

Even as we start to see a light at the end of the tunnel of this challenging season, we still turn to music to brighten our days and soothe our spirits. It is the greatest honor of my life to help you find new songs, or new versions of classics you love, and I have a feeling that the songs on this list might just be exactly what you need. So, let’s dive in! 

  

      1. Hallelujah by One Voice Children’s Choir 

      Why you’ll love this: 

      This song is so iconic and one of my favorites, but there is something so special about hearing these sweet kids’ voices sing it. You can tell they’re putting their heart into every line and that energy really flows through the song. It’s so inspiring to see the next generation unlock a passion for music! One Voice Children’s Choir is one of our newest Featured Artists here at Legendary Vocals and this track is a perfect example of why we’re so excited to have them.

          2. It is Well With My Soul by BYU Vocal Point

          Why you’ll love this: 

          Well to start, it is one of the most beautiful hymns of all time. And nothing tops Vocal Point’s vocals! When you’re listening to this one, try to really just sit back and enjoy. Let the music wash over you and settle your soul. This is a perfect song for contemplation, deep breaths, and gratitude.

              3. You Raise Me Up by BYU Vocal Point

              Why you’ll love this: 

              I think we all know what it feels like to have a weary soul. Just as the title says, this song will lift you up so you “can stand on mountains.” If you need some inspiration, you couldn’t ask for a better track, and as always the boys of Vocal Point do an incredible job telling the story of this song through their voices.

                  4. Go the Distance (from Hercules) by BYU Vocal Point feat. The All-American Boys Chorus 

                  Why you’ll love this: 

                  If you ever feel like you need to believe in yourself to achieve your dreams, this song is perfect for you. The combined voices of Vocal Point and the All-American Boys Chorus make this track beyond inspirational and absolutely gorgeous. Check out their awesome music video for some beautiful nature, too!

                      5. Homeward Bound by BYU Vocal Point feat. The All-American Boys Chorus  

                      Why you’ll love this:

                      The voices of these two groups coming together is almost too much for my heart to handle. Mentorship and role models are so important, and you can tell that Vocal Point takes that role seriously. The All-American Boys Chorus adds a really sweet sound to this track and reminds us all of the comforts and wonders of being homeward bound.

                          6. Beauty Lies (Jordan Smith) by One Voice Children’s Choir

                          Why you’ll love this:

                          Hearing these young people sing about inner beauty and loving yourself no matter what is seriously one of the most uplifting and inspiring things you can do. Knowing your own worth and celebrating that is so important and I think music can be a huge part of that self-love. Listen to these talented kids sing and rejoice in your beauty today! 

                          Pre-order the album: Hallelujah 

                           

                              7. When You Believe by One Voice Children’s Choir 

                              Why you’ll love this: 

                              One Voice Children’s Choir sings in three different languages on this track, which gives it such a unifying and healing feeling. They filmed the video on the beaches of Normandy, which is so incredibly powerful and really adds another layer of depth to the track. I think you’ll find a lot of relief and release listening to this song, which are things we all need from time to time.

                                  8. Loch Lomond by Peter Hollens feat. David Archuleta

                                  Why you’ll love this: 

                                  You all know that David Archuleta is one of my all-time favorite artists, which made it even more special to sing this breathtaking folk song with him. Loch Lomond is so beautiful in its simplicity and just from listening to it you feel like you’re in the highlands of Scotland. This is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever sung and I’m so honored that David wanted to sing it with me!

                                      9. Greensleeves by Peter Hollens feat. Tim Foust

                                      Why you’ll love this: 

                                      This is one of the most famous melodies of all time, but I’m willing to bet you’ve never heard it like this. Tim Foust’s rich vocals add so much dimension and I had the best time recording it with him (and filming the gorgeous music video!). This song feels like wrapping yourself up in a familiar blanket. I hope it can bring you some comfort on tough days.

                                      For my monthly playlist, I wanted to pick songs that I feel really express the feeling of autumn as it approaches. As the leaves start to fall from the trees and the vibrant colors of autumn start appearing everywhere, those nights cuddled around a fire and surrounded by family and friends made me think of each of these songs. Ranging from folksy and comforting songs to soft and impactful hymns, I feel the love and talent from all these artists and I’m so excited to share them with you! Enjoy 😊

                                      by Legendary Vocals September 01, 2021 3 min read

                                      As fall comes fast around the corner, as the leaves start to change colors, and kids start going back to school, I wanted to compile a playlist of songs that feel dear to my heart. Each song reminds me of autumn in some way; the warm colors, the vivid leaves, the toasty, cozy feeling you get in your chest as the season begins to change. These songs are perfect to play as you say goodbye to the kids as they go back to school, as you bake yummy fall treats in the oven, and as you contemplate the fun-filled summer ending.

                                      by Legendary Vocals August 31, 2021 3 min read

                                      Brooklyn Duo rose to prominence in the music world in 2014 after releasing classical interpretations of two popular pop songs, Shakira's Empire and John Legend's All of Me. Marnie and Patrick Laird, a married couple who met in 2006 and married in 2012, have been playing piano and cello respectively, for a long time. Patrick and Marnie both attended prestigious music schools and worked as professional musicians for a few years before deciding to release the covers that catapulted them to prominence.
