Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be Mormon?
Everyone is invited to join in this effort to sing the praises of Jesus Christ's Resurrection! It does not matter if you are LDS, Catholic, Baptist, or another denomination—you are invited to participate. You can even reach out to your church choir and help them create and upload a video, if you want. The purpose of this Easter initiative is for Christians from around the world to come together to sing praises and proclaim that Jesus Christ the Messiah lives!
What is a virtual choir?
This effort is an Internet phenomenon where thousands of people record themselves singing a song, they all upload their videos to YouTube, and the uploaded voices of those singing are combined into a choir! A man named Eric Whitacre started the virtual choir trend, and he is the inspiration for this Virtual Hallelujah Chorus.
This sounds fun, but I am not trained in singing. Can I still participate?
The Lord has said, "For my soul delighteth in the song of the heart; yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads" (D&C 25:12). He did not say that only the trained vocalist's song or the perfect tenor's song is acceptable; it is the song of your heart that pleases the Lord. And so everyone is welcome to join the Mormon Tabernacle Choir for this project. It does not matter your level of talent or training.
To help you get started, Peter and Evynne Hollens, who are both trained singing professionals, have produced videos to help you practice.
