A Group of Young Men Gather in the Mountains to Sing ‘You Raise Me Up’—Their Performance Will Give You Chills

### BYU Vocal Point’s Unique Acapella Rendition of “You Raise Me Up”

There’s something special about a powerful acapella song—it captures your attention with pure vocal talent and no distracting instruments. Brigham Young University’s (BYU) Vocal Point really nails this with their version of Josh Groban’s 2003 hit “You Raise Me Up,” giving the song a fresh burst of energy.

BYU Vocal Point started in 1991, thanks to students Dave Boyce and Bob Ahlander. Their first performance was a hit, selling out and making them a quick favorite on campus. Over the years, they’ve racked up some impressive achievements, like placing fifth on NBC’s The Sing-Off in its third season. They got an even bigger boost in December 2018 when they signed a record deal with Universal Music Group’s Decca Gold.

As member Jason Bromley put it, “We’re just regular college students doing amazing things.”

Their music video for “You Raise Me Up” is a real treat. Filmed against a breathtaking backdrop of mountains and valleys, the performance starts with a single clear voice, soon joined by another to create rich, layered harmonies. The group’s bright, clear vocals and inventive vocal percussion make the song even more immersive as they move through the scenic landscape.

The way their harmonies blend makes it hard to pick out individual lead singers, which is part of the charm. They don’t just cover the song—they reinvent it, adding a new hook at the end that heightens the harmonies and leads to a powerful finish, supported by an extra student chorus.

BYU Vocal Point’s take on “You Raise Me Up” is a unique and touching performance. Take a break, sit back, and enjoy their incredible rendition of this beloved song.
