In a moment that has gone viral, a choir comes together on the balconies of their hotel to sing ‘Down To The River To Pray.’ This touching performance reminds us all that God is at the center of everything.

“As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord, show me the way!”

The Colorado All State Choir is made up of state-wide high school students. These students really have a gift to be able to sing and perform, which is on display in the most amazing way today. Just watch the treble ensemble’s students gather outside their hotel rooms and stand around the open balcony. The choir gathers on each floor as far as you can see and begins to sing a cappella. And when the iconic words of ‘Down To The River To Pray’ were belt out, I was amazed.

“O sisters, let’s go down,
Let’s go down, come on down
O sisters, let’s go down
Down in the river to pray”

This talented group of students absolutely knows how to put on a show and amaze the audience. Despite being from all over Colorado, these singers all came together for this special performance and it’s touching people all over the country. This a cappella performance has been viewed over 7 million times on social media. And one listen to these talented voices and you’ll understand exactly why
