Choir Sings 'Down To The River To Pray' On Hotel Balcony

In a moment that has gone viral, a choir comes together on the balconies of their hotel to sing ‘Down To The River To Pray.’ This touching performance reminds us all that God is at the center of everything.


“As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord, show me the way!”

The Colorado All State Choir is comprised of high school students from the entire state. These students truly have a gift for singing and performing and, today, that is on display in the most incredible way. Just watch as the students of the treble ensemble gather outside of their hotel rooms and stand around the open balcony. As far up as you can see, the choir gathers on each floor and starts to sing a cappella. And when they belt out the iconic words of ‘Down To The River To Pray,’ I was in awe.

“O sisters, let's go down,
Let's go down, come on down
O sisters, let's go down
Down in the river to pray”

This talented group of students definitely knows how to put on a show and wow the audience. Despite being from all over the state, these singers all came together for this special performance and it's touching people all over the country. This a cappella performance has been viewed over 7 million times on social media. And one listen to these talented voices and you'll understand exactly why!

Amazing high school students sing “Down to the River to Pray” from hotel balconies!!! The singers are the treble ensemble of the Colorado All State Choir, which includes 34 of my finest Arvada West Choir students and awesome students from across the state!
