Father-Daughter Duo Perform Live Duet Of 'The Prayer'

Check out this stunning rendition of ‘The Prayer’ by this talented father-daughter duo.

“I pray you'll be our eyes and watch us where we go
And help us to be wise in times when we don't know
Let this be our prayer when we lose our way
Lead us to a place, guide us with your grace to a place where we'll be safe.” 

Mat and Savanna Shaw are the wonderful singers in this video. According to their YouTube page, the “daddy-daughter duo from Utah rose to prominence during the COVID-19 quarantine. Savanna, eager to keep in touch with her music friends, started a music social media account. Normally a shy and private teenager, she was nervous to sing her first song by herself, so she asked her dad to join her in singing ‘The Prayer.’ After that video went viral, Mat and Savanna continued releasing duets on social media and streaming platforms, quickly garnering a worldwide following.”

Now Mat and Savanna have come full circle – from singing ‘The Prayer’ in their first YouTube video, to now singing it on stage in front of a live audience. They share a little about this experience in the caption of this YouTube video.

“We wanted to share our live version of ‘The Prayer’ from our Christmas Concert at the Eccles theater! The energy and magic that happens when singing to a live audience is indescribable,” they wrote. “We feel so lucky and grateful to have been able to sing for and meet so many of you this Christmas season. Our prayer for you and for 2022 is that life will be kind. We pray that ‘every heart that’s broken will be mended.’ We hope that ‘we will remember we are all God’s children.’”

Many people online shared how Mat and Savanna’s voices have really touched them.

“Your voices and harmonies warm my heart and give me goosebumps,” one person wrote. “You two have given so many hope and faith during these past two trying years. Infinite gratitude.”

“Just as stunning as always. You two never disappoint, and your voices are truly a gift from the Almighty Creator to His Creation,” another person commented. “Thank you for allowing yourselves to be used by Him. I have been blessed immeasurably, along with so many!”

We hope that you also enjoyed listening to Mat and Savanna sing ‘The Prayer’ today!
