This talented group formed in 2011, but they truly shot to fame after winning the third season of the television show ‘The Sing Off.’ Since that moment, Pentatonix has become a household name
with viral performances such as ‘Mary Did You Know’ and ‘Hallelujah.’ On YouTube alone, Pentatonix has garnered over 4 billion views on their videos. Today, they’re taking on a gospel classic with this stunning performance of ‘Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone).’
“Amazing Grace, How sweet the soundThat saved a wretch like meI once was lost, but now am foundT’was blind but now I see”
Christian artist Chris Tomlin originally wrote this song for his 2006 album ‘See The Morning.’ It was even nominated for a Dove Award for “Song of the Year” at the 39th GMA Dove Awards. The powerful words remind us all that we are saved by His love and grace.
‘Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)’ is one of those worship songs that everyone knows and loves. It immediately soared in popularity and, now, it’s a staple in church services all across the nation. Though many voices have covered the song over the years, this a cappella rendition from Pentatonix is one of the best I’ve ever heard.
“My chains are goneI’ve been set freeMy God, my Savior has ransomed me And like a flood His mercy reignsUnending love, amazing grace”
We are so blessed to have the love of our Father and this iconic hymn is the perfect reminder of His amazing love and grace.
