WATCH: Cell Phone Choir Performs ‘It Is Well With My Soul’

As most the U.S. figures out the logistics of working from home, some workers are having a harder time than others translating their jobs online. For instance, how do studio singers work from home? A group of about 30 singers from the Nashville, Tennessee area collaborated to sing a version of the hymn “It Is Well With My Soul” arranged for a choir. The task required the group to perform as a virtual choir using their cell phones. The effect is, well…incredible.

“[Thirty one] of Nashville’s Studio Singers using their cell phones during Nashville’s Safer at Home order to record and lift their collective voices to share a message of hope and encouragement during these challenging days. It is well,” the description on the group’s YouTube video reads.

The singers featured in the video are used to rubbing elbows with the big stars of Nashville. But a recent “safer at home” order for Nashville-area residents sent many of these singers home.

The video features mashups of the singers recording their respective parts from their residences. The project was produced and arranged by David Wise. TenTwoSix Music Group is listed as the executive producer of the video.

It’s amazing to see the singers use their talents to bring hope and encouragement to those who need it. As most of the churches and schools across the U.S. move to online platforms so they can continue meeting virtually, people are getting creative with their meetings.
