This Christian A Cappella Group’s Chilling Rendition Of ‘What A Beautiful Name It Is’ Will Move You To Tears

When these college kids began to form a line inside an old chapel, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But just moments later, my jaw dropped as their voices blended in perfect unison to worship their Savior. This is the most powerful rendition I’ve ever heard — and you just have to listen for yourself to understand why!

Amidst our divided nation, a talented group of Christian singers has arisen. Hailing from Cleveland, Tennessee, these young students have set out to inspire America and remind the world of the true hope we have in Jesus. And there’s no doubt that God has blessed these students with some powerful pipes!

Voices of Lee is a 15-member a cappella ensemble from Tennessee’s Lee University. It was founded in September 1994, when the president of Lee University, Dr. Paul Conn, wanted to make a new group to represent the university. Excellence in harmony, spirit, and performance defines the lush musical style of The Voices of Lee.

In this unique rendition, these talented singers creatively arranged Hillsong Worship’s hit song “What A Beautiful Name” without any instruments. And yes, you read that right. These singers don’t use any instruments at all! Instead, this gifted group creates their unique sound and background “music” using only their voices.

When they first began to sing, I didn’t know if I would like the famous song without any instruments. But when they hit the high note at the 3:00 mark, I just couldn’t hold back the tears.

I promise, you don’t want to miss this. Every American needs to hear this group’s powerful and encouraging message of hope!


“Hallelujah! O my soul, praise God! All my life long I’ll praise God, singing songs to my God as long as I live.”  Psalm 146:1-2 MSG

Wasn’t that just beautiful? I don’t know about you, but I just couldn’t help but join in worship!

What A Beautiful Name
You were the Word at the beginning
One With God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in creation
Now revealed in You our Christ
What a beautiful Name it is
You didn’t want heaven without us
So Jesus, You brought heaven down
My sin was great, Your love was greater
What could separate us now
What a wonderful Name it is…
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What gifted voices lifting their hearts in worship! Thank you, Voices of Lee, for encouraging our nation in the midst of such perilous times. Our world needs hope and America needs Jesus! Please share if this powerful rendition encouraged your heart today.
