Over the years, this song has become one of the most iconic numbers of our generation. Opera voice Josh Groban propelled this song to popularity, but countless artists have covered the tune since that time.
The heartfelt lyrics resonate with so many people around the world and they remind us all that there is always somewhere to turn.
“When I am down, and, oh, my soul, so weary
When troubles come, and my heart burdened be
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me”
Today, we’re hearing a very special rendition of ‘You Raise Me Up’ from young Blake Walker. You may recognize Blake from the viral One Voice Children’s Choir. Over the years, this talented choir has performed countless covers of worship songs and contemporary hits. All of these performances have garnered millions of views online. Now, Blake is stepping out on his own for this awe-inspiring number. Just listen as he belts out these words that we all know and love.
“You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be”
There’s no doubt that Blake has talent well beyond his years. And with a voice like this, I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more of him in the future.
