We try to keep all posts opac. That is, one person singing, perc'ing, arranging, producing, etc. But this video is too good to pass up and it's for a great cause. Information has been copied from the original youtube video.
"The latest musical project, "Pray," consists of sounds entirely made by the voice and mouth. The arrangement (based on the Justin Bieber original) features Hollens, as well as Courtney Jensen and Therry Thomas, emerging artists who appeared with Hollens on NBC's "The Sing-Off." All proceeds from "Pray" will benefit victims of the March 2011 earthquake in Japan through the Red Cross.
'Pray' also features a gospel choir:
John Martin, Peter Jones, Jonah Seitz, Josh Heying, Neil Thurston, Myeshia Mae, Hannah Juliano, Kate Austin, Haley Steinberger, Porsch Anthony, Tom Anderson
Peter Hollens and A Cappella Records are donating all proceeds, still working out if the publisher is willing to donate. Will update when I find out more!"
So there you have it folks. Listen, purchase, and support the people fighting for their future in Japan. While the rest of the world has moved on, they are still in great need of help. Please, do this small gesture to show your concern for those that are grieving and struggling to move forward in light of everything.
