The Blessing sung by virtual choirs everywhere

Would you believe this beautiful song, THE BLESSING, a powerful anthem, was written at Elevation Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, by Cody Carnes, Kari Jobe, Steven Furtick and Elevation Worship? It’s true! Here’s the back story.

“And in just four days since the song was posted, the video of an Easter anthem by a Pittsburgh virtual choir has drawn more than 188,000 YouTube hits.” (cf. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and WTAE 4)

This virtual choir has inspired many others around the world, even across “the Pond,” where the UK Blessing has over 2.8 million views.
