Andrea Bocelli Sings ‘Amazing Grace’ In The Middle Of Times Square

One of the world’s most beautiful voices sang a beloved hymn in one of the most visited locations on Earth, making for a wonderful, moving and touching performance.

“Victory in Jesus,” “How Great Thou Art” and “Great is Thy Faithfulness” are all beautifully written, truth-filled and classic hymns. However, whenever someone mentions the word “hymn,” there is likely one that comes to mind for most people: “Amazing Grace.” 

“Amazing Grace” is a beloved work about the moment and the change God made in the songwriter's life. God, due to his immense love, mercy and grace, saved a "wretch like me."

"Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I was once lost, but now I'm found
Was blind but now I see"

Andrea Bocelli, a world-renowned Italian singer, performed the song about love and the unending grace of God in the middle of Times Square in New York City. 

In the video, Andrea stands on a stage and performs in the “heart of civilization” as hundreds of people crowd around, taking in this stunning performance. 

The song, with its message about God's saving grace, reaches the ears of hundreds and possibly thousands of people, as shown in the video. Dozens of people hold up their phones or cameras to capture the special and wonderful moment. 

Times Square, one of the most visited tourist locations in the world, is usually filled with hustle, bustle and an endless array of noise and chatter. However, as the video shows, it’s essentially quiet except for Andrea’s voice as he sings the touching and heartfelt lyrics that mean so much to so many. 

Andrea’s performance in the “city that never sleeps” happened at the premiere of the film “The Journey." The movie features performances from and interviews with the beloved Italian singer. 

Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.”
