One Voice Children’s Choir released a brand new video to go along with their cover of “Mary, Did You Know?” – and it’s like getting a beautiful, early Christmas gift.
In only a couple of days, their rendition has racked up over 19K “likes” on YouTube, with surely many more to come.
Don’t be surprised if it jumps to your list of holiday favorites!
One Voice Children’s Choir (OVCC) is made up of youngsters from the Wasatch Front area in northern Utah.
The members of the singing group are between the ages of four and 18.
However, they all have one thing in common…each has a heavenly voice!
OVCC originated back in 2002 as a choir for the Winter Olympics (under a different name).
After the event was over, the children had a desire to continue performing together.
Thanks to the group’s founder and music director, Masa Fukuda, along with supportive parents, this dream became a reality.
On their website, it says:
“One Voice Children’s Choir is part of a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation with a mission to inspire the world through the power of children’s voices.”
The choir has over 100 members and more than 3.2 million subscribers on YouTube.
With just a quick scroll through their channel, it’s easy to see that OVCC covers a variety of music styles.
In addition to Christmas songs, they also sing pop, gospel, Broadway, and more! They even perform originals as well.
People all over the internet are falling in love with their cover of “Mary, Did You Know?”
The song is featured on OVCC’s new holiday EP titled The More You Give.
Not only is their version breathtaking to listen to – but watching the members’ angelic faces while they sing makes it even more uplifting.
“Mary, Did You Know?” is a song that touches many hearts during the Christmas season.
The powerful lyrics consisting of questions to Mary were written by Mark Lowry, with the music by Buddy Greene.
Over the years, numerous artists have covered the song. But wait until you hear how chilling it is when more than two dozen children sing it together!
They sound like a choir from up above.
In the beginning, the young vocalists face in different directions, each in their own world while they perform.
Eventually, they’re all standing on their feet facing the choir director. Mixed with their voices it’s a wonderful sight.
YouTube users have left tons of positive comments, such as:
“Another beautiful performance of a wonderful, truth filled, Christmas song. There’s a lovely choral sound to this, especially with the harmonies. Well done Masa, well done all.”
Another person wrote:
“Their voices are wonderful to the point that you get moved to tears. Music brings us all together.”
One Voice Children’s Choir shared their own kind message with fans. In the comments section, it says:
“Happy Holidays! Thanks for checking out our latest video from our Holiday EP. This year has been difficult for most of us. We’re hopeful of a bright future as we celebrate this unique holiday season. We’re thankful that we have been able to continue to safely share music during the pandemic.
