September 19, 2018 VIDEOS


We’ve seen people sing on bridges, against beautiful mountain valleys, with family in living rooms and in packed concert halls – but nothing is as hauntingly beautiful as the Bethel College Choir’s show inside a grain silo. With the help of a local farmer, the group poured into the silo and organized themselves appropriately. The acoustics in the silo were perfect for a booming rendition of “Down To The River To Pray,” and the slight echoing made it feel like He was with them as they sung. They sensed God was there, watching their performance and smiling down from Heaven!

Before the group entered Farmer Derek Klingenberg’s empty silo, they practiced for weeks. They wanted to nail down every note before showcasing their sound in the big steel container. For some reason, everyone in the choir felt confident this was going to be the production of a lifetime – and it showed. The groups’ dozens of talented musicians sang their hearts out as several others played their instruments flawlessly. Their sound reverberated off the silo’s steel walls and the camera hanging overhead caught all of it!

As soon as they wrapped up “Down To The River To Pray,” smiles spread from face to face. Everyone was proud of their performance and couldn’t wait to share it with the world. Sure enough, people from all over the globe tuned in to watch the Bethel College Choir sing in such an unusual location. They’ve had more than 144,000 views in just a matter of days! Take a peek at their rendition of this classic hymn for yourself below.
