“We are blown away by all the love and support that’s been shown since we posted this recording,” said Danny Murray, Voices of Lee director. “We knew this project would touch lives, and we have been humbled by the thousands of calls, comments, requests, and testimonies that keep pouring in.”

The recording is a continuation of the Voices of Lee A Cappella worship series.

Voices of Lee was founded in 1994. The group was propelled into the spotlight on NBC’s season one of the Sing-Off in 2009. Since then the ensemble has been invited to sing at various festivals, including the Shang Hai International Music Festival. They have toured Europe with concerts at the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris and England’s Ely Cathedral and have been featured performers for Christmas at the White House and the 2013 Presidential Inauguration.
