Pentatonix Joins Jennifer Hudson in Singing “How Great Thou Art”

With only a few months to December, we can already feel the spirit and warmth of the Christmas season. As for Christians, it is again the time of the year of giving and sharing. But more importantly, it is when we remember Jesus’ coming into this world and saving us from our sins. (Amen!)

Now, if you are still not in the holiday spirit, you’ll surely go from zero to Santa level real quick as soon as you hear this incredible performance we are about to present to you. In a very likable situation, the a cappella group, Pentatonix, joins one of the greatest divas in recent times, Jennifer Hudson, in singing the gospel classic “How Great Thou Art.”

Pentatonix and Hudson Greet Us A Merry Christmas

Pentatonix, founded by Arlington’s Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, and Kirstin Maldonado, has made that Christmas is the happiest time of the year. The a cappella group has released a few Christmas albums, which are bestsellers. Just last year, they released their album, “A Pentatonix Christmas Deluxe.” It was a hit album especially its Christmas-song videos as they got hundreds of thousands and even more than a million views on Youtube. Also, Pentatonix’s Christmas specials aired on NBC have already become regular and annual events.

On November 21, 2017, the group released a preview of “A Very Pentatonix Christmas.” It was their latest Christmas special, which featured a number of guest stars. Among these were Jay Leno, teenage ventriloquist and “America’s Got Talent” winner Darci Lynn Farmer, and country singer Brett Eldredge.

However, the biggest name and the highlight of the night was when the former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson joined the group. Both Hudson and Pentatonix filled the air with the Lord’s spirit as they sang “How Great Thou Art.” Soaring high with the gospel song, Hudson belted it out as she harmonized vocals with Pentatonix’s Hoying.

Furthermore, Kevin Olusola, Pentatonix’s beatbox vocalist, provided a rhythm track with his voice. They were also joined by Matt Sallee, the new bass vocalist of the group after the departure of Avi Kaplan who was the original bass.

Overall, the night was filled with great singing and powerful performances. But, the main part of the show was to transcend the true meaning of Christmas.
