Worldwide Virtual Choir Sings Easter Hymn During COVID-19 Pandemic

 
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, hundreds of Christians from across the globe, including the United States, Africa, the Philippines and Eastern Europe, are joining together virtually to sing a celebration hymn for Easter Sunday. The Virtual Easter Choir Project will sing Christ The Lord is Risen Today, written by John Wesley in 1739.

The United Methodist Church (UMC) produced the piece as a gift to the world, allowing all people to hear this hymn and celebrate Easter in their homes during this pandemic.

“For more than 2,000 years, Christians have celebrated Easter together. While COVID-19 has prevented us from worshipping physically together in our houses of worship, we wanted everyone to still hear this familiar hymn and sing along and experience the risen Christ,” said the Rev. Junius B. Dotson, General Secretary (CEO) of Discipleship Ministries, the UMC agency that organized the choir.

United Methodists from among the denomination’s 11 million members worldwide were invited to submit a video to be included in the project, and hundreds did – all ages, individuals and families, some singing in their pajamas and others dressed in their Easter best.

The full Virtual Easter Choir video performance will be available Friday, April 10th here: www.umcdiscipleship.org
