The second annual “A Very Pentatonix Christmas” special is airing on Nov. 27, but NBC is already teasing the musical greatness that will soon be coming to your television screen. Based on the clip they released of Pentatonix and Jennifer Hudson singing “How Great Thou Art”—you’ll want to tune in!
The Pentatonix a cappella group won “The Sing Off” back in 2011, and they’ve been making incredible music using only their combined voices ever since. But when they do decide to team up with other artists, the results are amazing, and this video proves it.
To sing “How Great Thou Art,” they collaborated with none other than powerhouse vocalist Jennifer Hudson, and the performance is too good to describe with words. You have to hear it to believe it:
Their voices come together seamlessly, and when Hudson is singing on her own, it’s truly miraculous. She hits those high notes perfectly and, ultimately, delivers one killer performance. Naturally, people can’t stop talking about this duet online. One person called the collaboration “phenomenal” on Twitter:
I literally caught myself holding my breath while I watched. Phenomenal.
