Watch This Gospel Trio Take a Disney Medley To Church
Gospel group Resound has had their share of viral videos spotlighting their impeccable harmonies. But they aren’t just another music act posting cover songs on YouTube. They have a knack for transforming the songs they cover far beyond where they started from. What makes their recordings so stellar? Well, it’s a mix of beautiful voices, classical music training, and a whole lot of church.
For their Disney medley, the trio relied heavily on the memorable songs from The Lion King including “Hakuna Matata”, “Can you Feel The Love Tonight”, and “The Circle of Life”, while throwing in handpicked classic Disney tunes like “When You Wish Upon A Star” and “A Whole New World”. But you’ve never heard these songs sung like this before. The richness of their dynamics and stacked harmonies will have you throwing your hands in the air and thanking God for blackness. Because if there is one thing this video is, beyond stunning, it’s 100% black.
