Mormon Tabernacle Choir – Stay N Alive

Tabernacle Tuesday: The Entire Mormon Tabernacle Choir Flash Mobs Williamsburg

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is doing some cool things with Social Media on their tour out East. I shared the Infographic earlier. This was even a surprise to me – to a crowd of unknowing participants in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, the Grammy Award Winning Mormon Tabernacle Choir (335 Members!) Flash-Mobbed the audience, singing “My Country Tis of Thee” and “Yankee Doodle”, both American Patriotic songs. I’ve been in the audience singing with the choir before, and it’s quite an amazing experience. Can you imagine being in this audience?

Disclosure: I work for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and work with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir occasionally. These opinions are my own and not those of my employer.

Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s "Hallelujah Chorus"

This video, featuring Handel’s Messiah by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir was put together in partnership with BYU TV just for Youtube.  I think it’s a beautiful piece.  Many people, Christian and not, can’t imagine the holidays without this amazing Choir.  I think back to “Mr. Krueger’s Christmas” (with Jimmy Stewart), something close to my family, which my Grandfather (and namesake) produced – perhaps one of the most famous cameos by the Choir.  Their weekly broadcast, “Music and the Spoken Word”, recently won a Radio Hall of Fame entry for being the longest running Radio Show in America.  You’ve seen them singing around the world, in front of the Whitehouse, at the Olympics, and even comforting America after 9/11.  Ronald Reagan called them, “America’s Choir.”

It’s been an honor working with them recently, although I admit, working with them has been not anywhere near as effective as just letting their talent and beautiful voices speak for themselves.  Please enjoy this video and, if you like it, share it with someone else you think it might touch:
