A Cappella Choir Sings ‘Unchained Melody’

A Cappella Choir Sings ‘Unchained Melody’

A choir of unbelievably talented vocalists turned in a stunning and heartfelt cover of the Righteous Brothers’ classic “Unchained Melody.”

Since the creation of sound and music, man has developed dozens and dozens of instruments. Those tools help to make beautiful and pleasant sounds that span all genres, preferences and tastes. However, as inventive as some of those tools created by man are, they will never top the original musical instrument manufactured by God himself. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, a group of musicians, the OneVoice choir, put this original instrument to work, perfectly demonstrating the beauty, wonder and power of the human voice. They give an excellent and catchy rendition of the Righteous Brothers’ 1965 hit “Unchained Melody.”

The choir’s cover is simply fabulous. With their rendition, the group shows that covers do not have to change much in order to stand out and be memorable. All the lyrics and the sound remain intact and, for the most part, is completely the same as the original. 

I mean, classics are classics for a reason, right? Dramatically changing the words, sounds or feel of “Unchained Melody” sounds (pun wholly intended) like a recipe for disaster. Doing so would only serve to turn off and anger their audience, something no musician, band or choir ever wants to do.

Instead, the group only changes the way in which they recreate that original sound. Instead of using instruments, the group member’s voices provide the music as well as the memorable lyrics. Their effort seemed to go over well. Not only will anyone who views the clip enjoy their performance, but those watching their cover live also seem to be totally on board with their musical choices.

At several points throughout the clip, the camera catches the audience’s response to their cover. What looks to be an entire row stands and sways their arms back and forth to the beat of the beloved song.
