Teenagers Perform Chilling Down To The River To Pray In Hotel

Music has always been a good way to bond for a lot of people. It's a means of expressing one's emotions and ideas, too.
The Colorado All-State Choir, however, took music to a whole new level. It would definitely be hard for anyone not to appreciate what they did and how they used music to show unity and harmony in a different way.
The choir, which was made up of different high school students from the entire state, assembled outside of their hotel rooms. There, they lined the hotel balcony, gathering together as far as they fit and started singing acapella.
They sang the iconic "Down To The River To Pray". It's an African-American spiritual and gospel song. While its origin isn't exactly known, it's believed to be composed and created by an African-American slave. The song was believed to carry messages of hope.
The song has many versions and one of the firsts was entitled "The Good Old Way". Another version was released in 1880 and was entitled "Come, Let Us All Go Down".
The song was delivered in such a beautiful way. Their voices echoing through the different floors of the hotel just felt magical. It felt as if angels were actually singing the song. Every low and high note was hit with perfection that you'd think that the students rehearsed the performance dozens of times.
Another nice thing about the choir's performance was that they were able to pull off an incredible show despite coming from different parts of the state. It's also amazing how they were able to get their voices to harmonize together and deliver a really stunning performance despite it being impromptu. They were really excellent in paying close attention to the choirmaster below.
The Colorado All-State Choir was simply magnificent in what they did. And ever since their performance was uploaded, the video has been viewed more than 9 million times and shared 168,000 times. Those numbers clearly show how impressed people all over the world are in what they saw.
The choir's performance doesn't just showcase how great at singing the students are but it also delivers one clear message- faith is the center of everything. No matter what you believe in, your faith will get you through the most difficult times and that there's always hope. Things may not appear to be great right now but soon, your faith will give you a breakthrough and you'll be safer, happier, and better after.
The way the Colorado All-State Choir delivered such a powerful song is truly unbelievable.
