Mesmerizing A Cappella Rendition Of ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’

Mesmerizing A Cappella Rendition Of ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’

An incredibly gifted group of vocalists put their stunning, God-given musical gifts on full display with their outstanding rendition of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.

Human beings are interesting creatures and will always be a source of intrigue. For instance, the human voice is an amazing and beautiful instrument. It can produce some of the most delightful and lovely sounds imaginable. Some can do this more than others, of course. But in addition to the sound produced by the voice, it is also the first instrument and the only one personally created by God Himself. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, VoicePlay and J.None give an emotionally stirring and awe-inspiring cover of a tune from the 1960s. Later, the song became more widely recognized because it was in Disney’s Academy Award-winning film “The Lion King.” “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” is a beautiful song that paints a picture of the king of the jungle as a peaceful and serene creature.

“Near the village, the peaceful village
The lion sleeps tonight
Near the village, the quiet village
The lion sleeps tonight”

The guys get plenty of time to show off their outstanding vocal skills by singing the track’s memorable and classic lyrics. They all shine as they provide a slightly different sound and tone to the performance. But the one that stands out the most is the young man with the dramatically deep, baritone voice. It’s somewhat jarring at first because it’s so different from everyone else’s sound. But it quickly grows on you. 

In addition to the vocal performances, several animals appear throughout the 3-minute clip, including the large, tired feline whom the guys are singing about. 

Because the lyrics are so catchy and the guys’ vocal performances are enjoyable, you’re bound to find yourself humming and singing along with them.
