Peter Hollens Sings A Cappella 'Auld Lang Syne' For New Year

Peter Hollens helps us usher in the New Year with an incredible a cappella rendition of ‘Auld Lang Syne.’

Peter became an instant online star when he started to post cover songs of our favorite tunes such as ‘Mary Did You Know’ and ‘Hallelujah.’ Many of his videos went viral and now it’s his full-time job to make incredible a cappella musical arrangements.

Today, he’s welcoming in the new decade with this unique performance of ‘Auld Lang Syne.’

‘Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne.’

‘Auld Lang Syne’ actually means ‘times gone by.’ We are saying goodbye to one year and welcoming in the next with hope and optimism. So, that is why this is the perfect song to sing as the ball drops.

After learning what these lyrics describe, it’s no wonder we always hear this one on television every year at midnight. And hearing Peter Hollens give this song the a cappella treatment is absolutely stunning. Just listen as he belts out these iconic words we all know and love.

‘For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.'

As we embark into a new year, it’s a time of reflection and intention of our goals for the next 365 days. Remember to put God first in all that we do and we are sure to have a wonderful year full of love and hope.
