Church Shares Peter Hollens' Hauntingly Beautiful "Mary Did You Know" with 6-Part Harmony

With over a million followers on YouTube, Peter Hollens has quite the reach on social media. And this Christmas season, he is using that influence to spread his faith and the message that, because the Savior was born over 2,000 years ago, we can all be delivered from our sins.

As a gift to members of the Church and others worldwide, the Church and famous LDS artists and influencers with a large following on YouTube have collaborated to create a "12 Days of Social" countdown to Christmas to share the message that "A Savior Is Born."

For the ninth day of this creative advent calendar, the Church shared this touching video by Peter Hollens, where he sings "Mary Did You Know" a cappella, harmonizing with himself in six parts. At the end of the video, he reminds all of his viewers to step back from the hectic pace of the season, to embrace friends and family, and to not get caught up in the consumer side of this season but to enjoy the wonderful chance we have to celebrate the birth of our Savior.

Among the other YouTubers who will participate in this event are David Archuleta, Jenny Oaks Baker, Alex Boye', Stuart Edge, Lindsey Stirling, the cast of Studio C, and many more, so keep following LDS Living for each new update.
