Unique Rendition Of ‘How Great Thou Art’ Forces Audience To Rise To Their Feet In Glory
We’ve heard countless renditions of “How Great Thou Art” in the past – but none have been as truly powerful as StikYard’s version. The revolutionary group of percussionists paired with a selected handful of musicians, singers, and artists to create a version of the song we’ll remember for the rest of our lives.
The way the drumming reverberates around the theater is absolutely breathtaking, and the vocalists’ sound complimented their music perfectly. This is a show everyone should watch at least once.
Before StikYard was a bonafide musical group, they were just a grip of artists with a dream. The group’s official website shared their vision and how they use music in such an innovative manner, “StikYard is a spirited fusion of driving percussion, original musical arrangements, and unique choreography.
Percussionists in motion utilize a dazzling display of unique and specially designed instruments to bring excitement and joy to audiences of all ages. Supporting performers sometimes join the fray, including solo artists, choirs, and dancers.” They wanted to bring a fresh sound to drumming – and, by all accounts, they totally nailed it!
Now the group travels from one corner of the country to the other, playing for professional sports teams, sold-out theaters, simple congregations (like we see in the clip here), and everything in between!
As if StikYard’s rendition wasn’t beautiful enough, the combination of their sound with the church’s singers pushed it even further. Their sound is wholly unique and their rendition of “How Great Thou Art” breathed new life into the song. Listen to their impressive act for yourself in the video below.
We can’t wait to see what other music the artists of StikYard release in the years to come. We’re sure it’ll be just as good as this performance.
