The Coronavirus pandemic is confining everyone to their homes until at least April 30th

Some are unable to work during their quarantine … while others are able to work from home…

But what if your job is as a studio background vocalist?

Nashville, Tennessee has a deep talent pool when it comes to singers. Some have sung background for the biggest stars you’ve heard of…

Their voices are on all kinds of demo recordings and records … many of which have become giant smash hits.

If you can’t gather in groups larger than ten … if you’re supposed to sanitize every surface you touch if you go to work … hundreds of studio performers who live in Nashville have no options. They’re out of work.

Well … perhaps not…

Someone came up with the idea of having each singer sing his or her part in the song, “It Is Well with My Soul” on their phones. They emailed their individual recordings to a producer, who put all the parts together.

The result was an absolutely amazing recording and video.

Watch the video here (4 ½ minutes).

  1. This is one of my favorite hymns, written by Hoatio Spafford, who lived in Chicago and who lost his considerable property in the Chicago fire (about 1871). He sent his wife and four children to England on a ship; the ship sank and the children were lost. His wife sent a telegram “Saved Alone”. He boarded a ship across the Atlantic, and someone pointed out to him the place where his children were lost. He then went below deck and wrote this hymn, written in the face of tragedy.

  2. THAT is the one song that gets me crying every time. Luv it! Thank you, thank you, thank you! ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.
